TZ BRIDGE UPDATE – 9/13/13 – – UTILITY WORK CONTINUES ON RIVER ROAD
Tappan Zee Constructors, LLC will continue utility work on River Road in South Nyack. This work will continue through November and will involve reducing the roadway to one lane during daytime hours. During non-work hours, the road will have temporary coverings in place that may create uneven driving surfaces.
Construction of the Rockland County trestle will continue and include daytime pile driving to install the temporary foundation piles needed to support the platform. Pile driving will be limited to a maximum of 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. on weekdays and, occasionally, from 12 noon to 7 p.m. on Saturdays.
Impact pile driving will continue as part of the ongoing test pile program through October at various future pile foundation locations, during the same timeframe as above. The test pile program will verify subsurface conditions and test structural load capacities in preparation for construction of the new bridge’s permanent foundation.
