Dozens attend another Tappan Zee Bridge public meeting
Dozens of residents attended a public meeting in West Nyack this evening to hear and comment on plans to replace the Tappan Zee Bridge. The meeting was held at the Palisades Center Mall, and was the latest in a series of sessions to educate people on the bridge's possible options. Some commuters say the rebuilt span should include a mass transit component, while others say the projected $5.2-billion price tag is hefty enough. "We'll design both bridge options, and we'll analyze them in this process," said Michael Anderson, of the Department of Transportation. "So we will not preclude any transit options that will be built in the future." DOT officials say there will be more public meetings, but the final plans will not be announced until August 2012.
