On Location with more than a Thousand Words

Looking good: the shared use path on the Westchester side gets new LED roadway lighting stanchions (columns) for safety and visibility. Path construction in South Nyack begins in 2018. Photos courtesy of the New York State Thruway Authority.

How they get there (Tappan Zee Bridge and under-construction eastbound span) from here (land): by boat as both are independent of land. Back to river travel.

Check out this view inside the cage of a 300-ton crane. Like the super crane did, this will place steel girders onto newly-minted piers near the Rockland landing.

Mighty big for pick-up sticks, right? Above, the rebar sections being cut will be or were installed within concrete. FYI, a tiny piece of rebar is heavier than it looks.

I’d like to know what you think.
