Tappan Zee Construction Continuing On Schedule

As a construction continues on the new Tappan Zee Bridge workers are finishing up the concrete platforms that will hold the towers on the future span. The two blocks, that will hold four towers each, were made out of steel tubes embedded in the bottom of the river and nearly 10,000 cubic yards of concrete, which was mixed on and poured from floating plants holding the necessary machinery. With the installation of the concrete islands finishing, drivers can expect to see the towers going up soon, possibly next month. Officials with the Thruway Authority stated last week that the first span will be open to traffic in December 2016 and construction is ongoing on the girders of the bridge, which will have panels installed later this year to form the road.
