The westbound bridge will remain in a temporary configuration while crews complete the bridges shared-use path connecting Westchester (New York) and Rockland (New York) counties for pedestrians and cyclists.

Fluor is honored to have been the lead design-builder for this project, said Terence Easton, president of Fluors infrastructure business line. We are proud of the team that delivered the Governor Mario M. Cuomo Bridge to New York. This is a landmark project that provides a vital link to the region and improves daily commerce.

The New York State Thruway Authority, in partnership with the Fluor-led joint venture of Tappan Zee Constructors, LLC “ comprised of American Bridge Company, Granite Construction Northeast, Inc. and Taylor Bros., Inc. “ replaced the old bridge with a new 3.1-mile state-of-the-art, twin-span, cable-stayed bridge crossing the Hudson River between Westchester and Rockland counties. The cable-stayed main span is supported by eight 419-foot towers, which stand at five-degree angles and feature a sleek, chamfered design. The iconic towers support 192 stay cables, which are made up of roughly 4,900 miles of steel strands.

The Governor Mario M. Cuomo Bridge is one of the largest single design-build contracts for a transportation project in the United States and is the largest bridge project in New York state history.
