It’s a big week for the big bridge between Nyack and Tarrytown. The Governor’s Office is in town on a good will tour talking to residents about plans for building a new bridge. Meanwhile, expect lane closures and lots’o traffic during deck replacement work each evening and overnight Mon-Fri, July 23-27.
There will be an early morning meeting at 8:30a on Thurs July 26 at Dominican College in Orangetown to talk about the bridge. For everyone East of the Hudson, the Governor’s staff will meet and greet on Wed 7/25 at 8a at Berkeley College in White Plains. (Let’s hope they are serving coffee for both of these unusual public pre-9a meetings).
