New York Governor Cuomo Names New Design Review Team for Tappan Zee Bridge.

Recommended Posts

Transportation Nation - "Earlier this summer New York Governor Cuomo promised that a “blue ribbon selection committee” would review designs for the new $5.2 billion Tappan Zee Bridge. And on Wednesday morning, he named the members.

 

Artist Jeff Koons, architect Richard Meier, and Metropolitan Museum of Art director Thomas Campbell provide star power for “The Bridge Design Aesthetic Team,” which is tasked with recommending a final design for the new bridge.

The state is currently reviewing the bids from the three finalists for the project and will select one later this year.

Cuomo had promised to put a design review team in place to address aesthetic concerns about what the final bridge would look like.

 

But in his announcement today, he wouldn’t be pinned down on what the team was looking for. “I think we’ll know it when we see it,” the governor said. “We want an attractive design that enhances the region.” He added that the Tappan Zee, which connects Rockland and Westchester Counties, spans “a magnificent part of the Hudson River” and “design is an important element here.”"

I'm not that worried about the design, I'm more worried about the provisions for the future, including the provision for future Metro-North Service across the Hudson. Where's the ruckus about that, eh?

When are they finally going to start working on this thing? when it falls into the river like the bridge in Minnesota did in 2007. Why do we need a panel to scrutinize how it looks, its more important how the bridge functions in getting people from Rockland to Westchester and vice versa.
