Tappan Zee Bridge, Hudson River

The Governor Malcolm Wilson Tappan Zee Bridge, almost always referred to as the Tappan Zee Bridge, or simply the Tappan Zee, is a cantilever bridge in New York over the Hudson River at one of its widest points, the Tappan Zee, named for a Native American tribe from the area called the "Tappan" (zee being the Dutch word for "sea").[3] It connects Nyack in Rockland County with Tarrytown in Westchester County. Construction started in March 1952 and it was opened for traffic on December 15, 1955. The total length of the bridge and approaches is 16,013 feet (just over 3 miles, 4.881 km). The cantilever span is 1212 feet (369.42 meters) providing a 138-foot (42-meter) clearance over the water. The bridge is located about 25 miles north of Midtown Manhattan and the Manhattan skyline can easily be seen from the bridge on a clear day.

The bridge is part of the New York State Thruway mainline, and also designated as Interstate 87 and Interstate 287. The span carries seven lanes of automotive traffic. The center lane can be switched between eastbound and westbound traffic depending on the prevalent commuter direction; on weekdays, the center lane is eastbound in the morning and westbound in the evening. This is accomplished via a movable center barrier that is moved by a pair of barrier transfer machines. Even with the switchable lane, traffic is frequently very slow, often highlighted on rush-hour traffic reports.

As of June 2008, each eastbound passenger car pays a toll of $4.50 cash, or $4.28 via E-ZPass.

In 1994, the name of Malcolm Wilson, a former Governor of New York was added to the bridge's name, though it is almost never used when the bridge is spoken about colloquially

With the increasing demands for commuter travel taxing the existing bridges and tunnels, the Port of New York Authority had plans in 1950 to construct a bridge across the Hudson near Dobbs Ferry. The proposal was overridden by Governor of New York Thomas E. Dewey, who wanted to construct a bridge to connect the New York State Thruway across Westchester to the New England Thruway. The Port Authority promised its bondholders that it would not allow any other entity to construct a river crossing within its jurisdiction, which reached to a point one mile south of Nyack and across to Piermont. A May 10, 1950 editorial in The New York Times sested that a site in southern Dobbs Ferry or northern Hastings-on-Hudson, where the Hudson narrowed considerably from its three-mile width at Tappan Zee, would be a more appropriate site, and sested that Governor Dewey work with his counterpart, Governor of New Jersey Alfred E. Driscoll, to craft a compromise that would offer Thruway customers a discounted bridge fare at a more southerly crossing. Two days later, Governor Dewey announced that the Port Authority had dropped its plans to construct a bridge of its own. The location would be as close to the Tarrytown-Nyack line just outside the Port Authority's jurisdiction. Dewey stated that World War II military technology would be used in the bridge's construction.

The site of the bridge, at the Hudson River's second-widest point, added to construction costs. The site was chosen to be as close as possible to New York City, while staying out of the 25-mile range of the Port Authority's sphere of influence.

The deteriorating structure, which bears far more traffic than it was designed for, has led to plans to repair the bridge or replace it with a tunnel or a new bridge. These plans and discussions were whittled down to six options and underwent environmental review. Part of the justification for the replacement or restoration of the bridge has been that the materials used to construct it were deficient due to material shortages during the Korean War. Statements that the bridge was constructed to last 50 years have not been substantiated. The collapse of the I-35W Mississippi River bridge in Minnesota on August 1, 2007 has renewed concerns about the bridge's structural integrity.

The Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA) is studying the feasibility of either including a rail line across the new bridge or building the new bridge so a new rail line can be installed at a future date. The rail line, if built, will be located on a lower level, beneath the car lanes. Commuter rail service west of the bridge in Rockland County is limited, and the MTA is studying expansion possibilities in Rockland County that would use the new bridge to connect with the Hudson Line (Metro-North) on the east side of the bridge along the Hudson River for direct service into Manhattan.

On September 26, 2008, New York state officials announced their plan to replace the Tappan Zee Bridge with a new bridge that includes commuter-train tracks and lanes for high-speed buses. The bridge would cost $6.4 billion, while adding bus lanes from Suffern to Port Chester would cost $2.9 billion. Adding a rail line from the Metro-Nort

Phone/Internet Charges

Phone/Internet Charges

I was puzzled by the electronic bill I received from BellSouth in January for phone and internet charges. We haven't had service since the levees failed. I filed an electronic inquiry, but never heard back from BellSouth -- though they did withdraw the money form my bank account.

I got another bill this month, so I called BellSouth. The customer service rep, a guy from New Orleans, said the central office had dialtone going out but no way of knowing that we don't have dialtone in our house. Seems a little suspect to me, but I was happy that he cleared my account of the charges.

Then he transferred me to a some sort of repair department to get our line fixed. But the woman I spoke with there said our service had been disconnected as of February 14th! Therefore she couldn't help me. She said I'd have to call customer service and schedule a re-connect. And that might take months.

I'm not sure I'm even interested.
