Three Years, Two Months: This Time Next Year

Welcome to spring. Snow happens. I remember when this storm surprised us; I was working in the city and commuting by train. There were no shelters on the platform, nothing to shield us while we waited for the familiar sound.

This is what I refer to when I talk about protection from wind at the belvederes.

Now that the former maintenance facility in Tarrytown — whose demise began last April — is gone, prep can begin for the new building that will occupy the site.

It’s been three years and two months since the project got its formal go-ahead. This time next year (thereabouts) we’ll be driving on the west/northbound span.

At a May 2012 meeting then-state DOT Project Director Michael Anderson said it “won’t be five years of everything,” referring to noise and construction neighbors feared would affect them, and that traffic would switch to the new bridge sometime during the fourth year.

I’d like to know what you think.
