New Tappan Zee Toll System Gets Start Date

According to the New York State Thruway Authority, the Tappan Zee Bridge tolls will be changing over to an all-electronic pay system next year. Officials stated that while Tappan Zee Constructors continue their work on the frame for the new tolls located at Exit 10 in South Nyack, drivers will continue using the booths in Tarrytown. Testing is set to begin this fall and the new system could be ready as early as Spring 2016. Drivers with EZPass will be automatically charged while driving beneath the electronic readers and vehicles without an EZPass will be sent a bill after an image is taken of their license plate. The Authority also stated in their update this week that the new bridge will open its first span to traffice in December 2016. The entirety of the new bridge is set to be completed in 2018. Multiple closures on the Thruway between Exits 11 and 10 can be expected this week from 8:00 PM to 4:30 AM as overnight construction continues.
