The New NY Bridge

The Supercrane

The New York State Thruway Authority is replacing the 6-decades-old Gov. Malcolm Wilson Tappan Zee Bridge north of New York City.  To accelerate completion of the new NY Bridge, fast-tracked environmental permitting, procurement and labor agreements were combined with design-build contracting to advance a plan discussed for more than a decade to a new bridge opening in 2018.  In this podcast we talk with David Capobianco, Director of Structural Design for the Thruway Authority about the features of the bridge and the process for delivering it.
