Tappan Zee Bridge Opening Delayed

According to Thruway Authority officials, the opening of the New Tappan Zee Bridge has been delayed. Executive Director of the organization Robert Megna, stated that the first span of the $3.9 billion project was set to open in December 2016, but has now been pushed back to Spring or Summer of 2017. Megan told the Journal News that officials were worried about the changed traffic pattern, with only four lanes open and a sharper turn there would be major delays during rush hour while driver got used to the differences and they should not have to worry about ice and snow on top of that. Megan also announced that there would be no toll increase on the current bridge for next year, and the task force for the new bridge will continue studying toll charges and traffic patterns to determine a cost for the all electronic toll system.
