Last March NyackNewsAndViews presented a 2006 picture of old steel panels on the western causeway of the Tappan Zee Bridge which had rusted right through. Those rusty panels, used to support electrical conduits, have been removed and eliminated as part of the re-decking work on the bridge.
We, the public, need to be honest with one another about the need for replacement of the existing bridge with two new ones each bigger than the existing one. The Governor’s team has certainly not been honest or transparent about the project and continues to misrepresent the issues and manipulate the taxpaying, commuting, toll paying, voting public.
