Building a new Tappan Zee Bridge spanning the Hudson River and connecting Rockland and Westchester counties is projected to cost upwards of $5 billion. The final environmental reports are in, and so are bids from three consortiums competing to design and build one of the largest infrastructure projects in the nation. Construction could begin by year’s end. Meanwhile, the funding puzzle remains.
