ICYMI: Where Educational Outreach Began

The photo above is the new westbound span and soon-to-be-finished eastbound span with the Tappan Zee Bridge behind them. Five years ago this summer, ideas of people in the photo below sparked the bridge project’s five-year educational outreach program. Photos are courtesy of the New York State Thruway Authority.

Learn more at the Lower Hudson Valley Engineering Expo next Sunday, April 15.

I’d like to know what you think.

Westchester Landing Removal & Lane Closures

And away it goes! Sections of Thruway near the Westchester landing say goodbye to the land this week, when crews begin removing them to make way for new precast concrete slabs. Click here for information about lane closures this week.

This is how the Thruway will connect to the land . . . and another reason the floating Tappan Zee Bridge-park was not a good idea.

Back to the picture above. Wouldn’t it make a pretty desktop wallpaper for your laptop or computer? Do you recognize the pattern?

It’s a tiny area of the more than 100,000 tons of welded (structural steel) beams supporting the roadway. Photo courtesy of the New York State Thruway Authority.

Oh, and remember the article I mentioned earlier about infrastructure, the new bridge and federal spending? You can read it here.

I’d like to know what you think.
