Sounds of More Silence and Other Doings

When South Nyack talks, Tappan Zee Constructors, LLC (TZC) listens.

Another noise monitor was recently installed near Terrace Drive, part of an environmental monitoring system per the Thruway Authority’s pledge to be open and transparent.

And the beat, er, work goes on.

The Rockland and Westchester temporary work trestles are coming along, and so is pile driving from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. on weekdays; and from 12 noon to 7 p.m. on Saturdays. And remember that neat video shown at last month’s public meetings? You can see it here.

Lest you forget, here come this week’s lane closures on I-87/I-287:

• Monday, April 21, to Thursday, April 24 — southbound right lane near Exit 9, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.
• Thursday, April 24 — northbound right land near Exit 10, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.
• Friday, April 25 — northbound right lane near Exit 9, from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.

Now approved, Coast Guard’s expanded Regulated Navigation Area (RNA) is 500 yards north and 500 yards south of the span. See details in the updated Local Notice to Mariners. Since October, temporary navigational lights marked the 600 foot-wide main channel, and while temporary and permanent piles are illuminated at night, activity in the river means BE EXTRA CAREFUL.

The Coast Guard boating safety information — excerpted and in its entirety — is listed under Boater Safety Information on the New NY Bridge website. A LNM primer is here.

I’d like to know what you think.
