The repair or replacement of the Tappan Zee Bridge was fast-tracked late last year, and the Thruway Authority Board will make a decision about the bridge's future very shortly, on December 17. A tipster passed along a presentation with renderings of three proposed bridge designs. Usefully, the proposals, gathered in the gallery above, include budget information. Proposal 1 costs $3.142 billion, proposal 2 costs $3.990 billion, and proposal 3 costs $4.059 billion. If money were no object, we'd probably give this one to proposal 3, but none of the proposals have us particularly excited. And it coulda been a High Line.
What say you, folks? Which proposal is best?
