First comes main span pile installation, then comes capping to ensure a more stable foundation. Workers began constructing the football field-sized caps this week.

The 90 to 100 vessels and barges in the river will become more than 130 as the project ramps up. GPS trackers are being placed on construction equipment, and a geo (electronic) fence will be placed around the work zone.

Details about the Coast Guard’s expanded Regulated Navigation Area (RNA) 500 yards north and 500 yards south of the span, and boating safety information, are listed on the New NY Bridge website.

Westchester County boating safety is here, and Rockland County boater safety is here. It’s urgently important to boat safely and responsibly, and to know what to do in case of an emergency. Stay safe, and have fun!

Work on the Rockland trestle continues, as does pile driving from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. on weekdays; and from 12 noon to 7 p.m. on Saturdays.

Take note of lane closures on I-87/I-287 from today forward:
• Tuesday, June 17, to Thursday, June 19 — northbound right lane near Exit 10, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. AND southbound toll plaza lanes (Tuesday: 3, 4, 5; Wednesday and Thursday: 6, 7, 8) from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
• Friday, June 20 — northbound right lane near Exit 10, from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m., AND southbound toll plaza lanes 8, 9, 10 from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.

I’d like to know what you think.
