What were the changes made with one of largest bridges in United States....

I read that it "In June 2010, Tutor Perini Corporation was awarded a $148.8m bridge deck replacement and rehabilitation contract by the New York State Thruway Authority. The contract includes the replacement of 420,000ft2 deteriorated bridge deck area."

Source : http://www.roadtraffic-technology.co...ppanzeebridge/

The project funded about $2.1 , recently Gov. Andrew Cuomo says the actual building of the new Tappan Zee Bridge has begun...

Then why it was given a Deck Replacement project when it already have the plan of new bridge

Considering the fact that if everything is completed on schedule, the new bridge won't open until 2018 it probably needed to be done to ensure safety before that date. In addition I'm quite sure this bridge, like every other major project in the New York area will take much longer than planned seller probably won't be open until 2020 or something like that.

July 7th. I'm guessing that's the Left Coast Lifter still sitting down in the harbor?

Most indubitably, I only wish the state actually planned a westchester-Rockland commuter line of some sort that used this bridge. Also that Crane looks a little to big to fit under the bridge.
