MB, if nothing happens they can say they got their money’s worth with that bridge. The schoharie creek bridge collapse they weren’t so lucky. Why they would build a bridge on the second widest point on the Hudson River is beyond my comprehension. It’s the same arrogance that made them try to build a nuclear plant on Long Island. Fortunately it was stopped in time. As for the new bridge…. Let them build a Chunnel. The expense alone is nuts. The original cost of the Tappan Zee $81 million. The projected cost of the new bridge $3.9 billion maybe, or maybe 5 6 7. Who knows. The new bridge is a JIT. A rush job. It may be the only thing Cuomo is remembered for except maybe his lunatic gun control.
