TZC: Dredging to Continue Through October 31 (USA)
Tappan Zee Constructors, LLC (TZC) will not engage in any pre-construction activities that affect traffic through today in observance of Labor Day.
No lane closures will be allowed until Tuesday Sept. 3 at 10am in order to avoid impacts on motorists during the busy Labor Day holiday travel weekend. In addition, no impact pile driving is scheduled until Tuesday September 3.
Dredging will continue 24/7 through Oct. 31. As outlined in the Final Environmental Impact Statement for the New NY Bridge project, the dredging window is designed to avoid negatively impacting migration and spawning patterns of local sturgeon populations and other fish species. The operations will deepen the river’s shallow water level in the work zone by removing sediment from the river bottom. The dredged materials are being properly disposed of at offsite locations.
Rockland bulkhead construction continues next week with concrete placement. Frequent concrete truck traffic is expected on certain designated roads in the villages of Nyack and South Nyack from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Tuesday, Wednesday and possibly Thursday. TZC and the Thruway Authority have coordinated extensively with village leaders and local police to ensure safety and minimize impacts on traffic, the villages and their residents.
