Today: Getting a Close Look at the Bridge Project
While wind made the Hudson misbehave — making it too dangerous for project officials to board the River Rose amid choppy waves — we had a rare as-close-as-you-can-get opportunity to see the bridge project while the stern-wheeler traveled through the main span channel and back.
Today. Was. Amazing. Big thank-you to the Historical Society of Rockland County for an educational and fun tour on a less-than-kind river, to project officials and to the River Rose staff. Whoosh! Those towers are big!
I met people from Chicago, New Jersey, West Nyack and beyond. Because of the weather project officials decided to cease in-river work.
After the boat turned around on the bridge’s south side and began heading north I noticed some workers on one of the main span crossbeams. It looked like they were reaching for a part that was being lowered, and I thought, “What a great photo op!”
As I’d missed the boat tour during National Safety Week, when the bridge builder received praise for its safety record and practices, this was exciting for me. Can you tell?
Stay tuned for more about the day and, of course, photos.
I’d like to know what you think.
