Tappan Zee Bridge Gets Expedited Approval (via Transportation Nation)

The White House announced Tuesday that it will expedite permitting and environmental reviews for a new Tappan Zee Bridge.

The Tappan Zee Bridge connects New York’s Rockland and Westchester Counties, and 135,000 vehicles cross it each weekday. It’s over 55 years old and is in constant need of major and costly repairs.

An expedited federal review is supposed to move construction along faster by coordinating the permitting process. But the final bridge design has yet to be announced, and the White House says “the project is an ambitious one and construction will not begin for several years.”
