Girder Assemblies? Check. Stay Cables? Check.


Comic relief passed me in another lane today as I wondered why there was traffic on Saturday afternoon. I was in the thick of it going to Rockland and watched cars backed up to nearly White Plains on the way back.


More than 12 of the 192 stay cables, and final steel girder assemblies for the Rockland-to-Westchester span, were installed. Remaining girder assemblies for the span set to open in 2017 will be installed in the next few weeks, per a recent press release.

On another note: those six planned belvederes/viewing areas on the shared use path are interesting; however, they don’t take into account the sun and wind. I wish they’d been planned with more practicality in mind.

I’d like to know what you think.

    What is your concern with the Belvederes?

      Thank you for reading my blog post, Mr. Benza. I linked it to an earlier post, where I said I’d appreciate if each of the six areas had a back and at least one side akin to a bus shelter – and more shade.

      One of the renditions, which shows a person in a wheelchair, is one of two designs that offer the most shade. This is not the same as the street or Walkway Over The Hudson or another short walking bridge; this is a long, open path high above the river, and the viewing areas offer little to no protection from the sun, its reflection off the water or wind.
