County Fabricators, LLC shipped out catwalks on a demanding schedule for the main span of the New Tappan Zee Bridge, according to Chief Marketing Officer Phil Benza. Engineers and/or maintenance workers would use the catwalks to access the underside and top side of the span and its pylons.

The highway is elevated at curves near Rockland, location of the built-in catwalks. Made of galvanized platforms, gratings, and side rails, they’re made to the highest standards of the New York State Steel Construction Manual, Benza said.

I’d like to know what you think.
