Brian Conybeare, special advisor to the Governor for the new Tappan Zee Bridge Project, will address the Rotary Club of Briarcliff Manor on December 7, 2012, on the proposed new bridge.
After years of delay, the movement to replace the Tappan Zee Bridge is finally underway under the leadership of Governor Cuomo. The project will build a new bridge that will be safer, transit ready and, in the process, will create over 45,000 jobs. After an accelerated, comprehensive and thorough review process, construction is slated to begin by the end of the year. In order to accomplish this, the Governor has put together a team of international, national and local experts to move this process forward and to make sure that the design that is chosen will make the Hudson River crossing here much easier, more efficient, environmentally protective of residents and marine wildlife, structured to last for at least 100 years, mass-transit ready, and pedestrian and cyclist friendly.
Brian is well known for his 16 years as the three time Emmy Award winning reporter and anchor at News 12 Westchester. His talk is expected to be informative, and would provide locals an opportunity to express their views and preferences on the new bridge.
The Briarcliff Rotary meets at The Briar's Restaurant, 512 N. State Road, Briarcliff Manor, on Fridays at noon for lunch.
