Yesterday I went to South Nyack and checked out the new bridge’s two outer lanes, which will become the shared use path (far right lane) and breakdown lane (second from right).
Not a bad ride, even with the gratings and the concrete strip that indicates where the shared use path divider will be built. And yes, the two left lanes were a bit smoother than the two right lanes.
When eastbound traffic moves to the new span, its two left lanes will also be a smoother ride than its two outer lanes. This arrangement is temporary until the eastbound span opens in 2018.
For the next few months, motorists have four westbound lanes on the new bridge and four eastbound lanes on the old bridge, the latter with that familiar thumpity-thump sound. Those empty lanes are being used as a construction area.
I’d like to know what you think.
