New Channel Markers; Viewing Platforms by Fall

Recreational boaters have six new lighted channel markers guiding them to and from the Piermont shore, per yesterday’s press release. Off-limits is the U.S. Coast Guard’s Safety Zone; heed the expanded Regulated Navigation Area (RNA).

Details — including the Coast Guard’s weekly Local Notice to Mariners, excerpted and in its entirety — are listed under Boater Safety Information on the New NY Bridge website. A LNM primer is here.

Safe boating, everyone.

You’ll be able to watch the bridge construction and learn about the project from the Nyack and Tarrytown shores. In related news: groundbreaking at Memorial Park, slated for amenities and a fishing pier through a $150,000 Local Waterfront Revitalization Program grant from the New York State Department of State.

I’d like to know what you think.
