The state Thruway Authority’s board will meet in Manhattan on Monday to pick a team of contractors who will build a replacement for the Tappan Zee Bridge.
The meeting will take place at 2 p.m. at the The Graduate Center at CUNY.
The authority released a “preliminary agenda” for the Monday meeting today, which contains no signs of a highway toll increase on commercial traffic that was first proposed in May.
Earlier this month, Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s administration unveiled three bids for replacing the Tappan Zee, a span connecting Rockland and Westchester counties in the lower Hudson Valley. The bids ranged from $3.1 billion to $4 billion, with a selection committee preferring the cheapest one, submitted by Tappan Zee Constructors.
The full Thruway board will make an official selection Monday. Of the seven board members, three declined comment today, two did not return calls for comment and two could not be reached.
