The original Tappan Zee Bridge project had a devastating effect on South Nyack, cutting it in two. In 1952 New York State destroyed over 100 South Nyack homes and our entire business district in order to build the bridge.
Now, 60 years later, the replacement of the Tappan Zee Bridge will once again impact no other community as much as South Nyack. There will be permanent changes and several years of construction that will affect our residents.
Mayor DuBow, the Trustees and other Village officials are working diligently to fight to minimize negative impacts and to also try to bring some positive benefits to the Village. This letter to South Nyack residents is intended to give you details about how the project affects South Nyack and what the Village is doing to fight for South Nyack’s interests.
The Mayor and Trustees encourage you to keep informed, let your views be known, and become more involved where you can.
