Comments: The Tappan Zee Bridge was not designed for the interstate traffic it receives daily. It was a NY State "thruway" and a toll road, that was not anticipated to carry as much as it does now. Today it links many resources. Other projects have perhaps been held up by it, i.e. a nearby truck-to-train transfer for produce, would have then again transferred in the South Bronx off the rail-cars to special trucks that would fit under every overpass in NYC, lowering produce costs by at least 5% once so-called Oak Point Link, 30 years ago. It was thought to eliminate a lot of truck traffic into and around the city by limiting unloading to the Tappan Zee area for special containers on trains shifted to special, smaller trucks.
