Please read below regarding the upcoming temporary closure of River Road to prepare for the demolition of the existing Tappan Zee Bridge:
New NY Bridge Project – Construction Update:
River Road Closure – Beginning October 10th
Tappan Zee Constructors, LLC (TZC) is preparing to remove the existing Tappan Zee Bridge to complete the second span of the Governor Mario M. Cuomo Bridge. The initial demolition effort will require a complete closure of the portion of River Road in South Nyack/Grand View that crosses underneath the existing span for up to four weeks.
The work will require the use of mobile cranes and other equipment as TZC removes large sections of concrete and steel from the area, employing noise mitigation techniques to minimize impacts to residents. The closure is scheduled to begin on October 10th and extend into early November, six days per week (Monday through Saturday), between the hours of 6 a.m. and 10 p.m.
During the closure, a detour route will be established to lead vehicles onto Route 9W. Electronic variable-message signs will also provide notifications two weeks in advance of the closure.
To safely accomplish the demolition, TZC and the New York State Thruway Authority are working closely with the emergency and first responder agencies, Rockland County transportation officials, elected officials, affected school districts, and commercial bus companies that service the area. Alternate routes for commuter bus services have also been established.
The closure site will be monitored 24/7 by project safety personnel who will provide temporary access for emergency service vehicles.
