The entrance ramp to the Tappan Zee Bridge (I-87 northbound/I-287 westbound) from South Broadway (Route 9) in Tarrytown will close to traffic for the duration of the New NY Bridge project, beginning at approximately 10 a.m. on Thursday, December 5.
Envision yourself four years into the future. It is late in 2017. Both spans of the new Tappan Zee Bridge are completed. But even before that, in December, 2016, westbound traffic moving on the present bridge toward Rockland County will have been diverted to the newly constructed north span with its four available lanes.
Some people are motivated by the quest for wealth. Others power. But for the security manager of the Tappan Zee Bridge project, life is all about service and adventure.
