A Work in Progress, Now and for the Future

A deliciously colorful, candy version of the New NY Bridge — right down to the chamfered towers — awaits finishing touches for this weekend’s Halloween activities. Members of the New NY Bridge Outreach team will be in Sleepy Hollow on Friday night, and in Nyack on Saturday night, with information about the project and this creative replica.

While the new bridge won’t have candy button lanes or Skittles® cofferdam foundations, it will be designed and built to last one century without major structural maintenance.

How to get from here to there, and back, is still unresolved. The transit task force is close to deciding upon plans for rail, or recommending a system that doesn’t preclude rail in the future, “focusing our energies on bus rapid transit,” state Department of Transportation commissioner Joan McDonald said.

It meets tomorrow, from 9:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m., at White Plains Public Library; the public is invited to attend, and will have an opportunity to address the group prior to the session’s conclusion.

I’d like to know what you think.
