Less Than One Year until the First Span Opens

The I Lift NY continues installing those blue girders, the first of which were placed last June; two months later there was another “first” placement, then the first of three girder assemblies was installed across Metro-North tracks in Tarrytown.

Friday afternoon I went to Nyack Library to get the current issue of Rivertown Magazine containing my bridge story (pages 82-83). You can’t miss the towers above the trees and the Route 119 overpass near Exit 9. My friend looked at blue structural steel girders, blue jump forms, and we both thought aloud how cool it would be if the bridge was in colors. It can be via programmable LED lighting.

Earlier I wrote about the Bridge Art Show that opened in September 2014 and yesterday saw it’d been reposted more than 20 times on LinkedIn. Thank you!

Preparations, planning and enthusiasm for the two-month show was a great introduction to the second year of educational outreach. The project was moving from in-river work to “going vertical,” we reporters heard that summer.

I’ll be at the Classic Car Night in Nyack this Thursday (watch for story in next month’s Rivertown Magazine). If you see me, then please come say hi.

I’d like to know what you think.
