Amazing how much money a bridge can suck up from throughout the state...

Regardless, it's a good investment for the Thruway I suppose.

I just wish Upstate got more money for infrastructure projects :/

the 'Left Coast Lifter' is finally doing what its name implies rather than just displacing water. It's moved closer to the Westchester coastline.

I recently had the opportunity to watch these works in action from a property high in the hills of Rockland County. Really stupendous stuff.

I rode over the TZB early this evening. The first concrete supports are complete - including one on the westchester end. I'll post pics later.

from earthcam, more form work has been removed, revealing more (nearly) completed concrete supports.



The taller support I took a picture of the other day can be seen behind the Cantilever of the old bridge



a rendering from an underneath perspective shows the concrete supports:

Unfortunately New York is a big state, when half your states' population is in .001% of the land area, a lot of money gets funneled into that tiny area.

this photographer gives intermittent, quality updates. In this photo you can see where the bridge is in relation to Manhattan.
