Construction Tarps Quickly Cleared from River

Boats and construction barges were joined by tarps belonging to Tappan Zee Constructors, LLC, and debris last weekend.

TZC spokeswoman Carla Julian reiterated safety is the company’s first priority.

“Work tarps on a TZC barge were blown into the Hudson River due to wind gusts nearing 20 MPH,” Julian said in a statement Father’s Day. “TZC crews responded immediately and safely retrieved the tarps.

Additional debris that floated down river near the project site due to the weekend’s weather was unrelated to construction, she said.

“Part of our safety plan requires that TZC crews man the site 24-7 in order to quickly respond to weather-related adjustments, such as this one, that may arise on site,” Julian said.

Last year’s runaway barges resulted in fines to the bridge builder.  A construction tugboat sank last November due to high winds.

I’d like to know what you think.
