The Structural Engineers Foundation (SEF) is please to present a free Fall Lecture on November 6, 2018. Advanced registration is requested.
New NY Bridge
The New NY Bridge project will replace the existing 60-year-old Tappan Zee Bridge with the new Governor Mario M. Cuomo Bridge, a new 3.1-mile state-of-the-art, twin-span cable-stayed bridge across the Hudson River between Rockland and Westchester counties, around 20 miles north of New York City. The bridge carries the New York State Thruway (I-87/I-287) across one of the widest parts of the river and will be the largest bridge in New York State history. The New York State Thruway Authority contracted Tappan Zee Constructors (TZC) – a consortium including Fluor Enterprises, American Bridge Company, Granite Construction Northeast, and Traylor Bros – with HDR as the lead designer, as the design-builder for this $3.9 billion project. This presentation will chronicle the design and construction of this landmark bridge.
