Tappan Zee Bridge Final Environmental Impact Statement (FEIS) Released
The Final Environmental Impact Statement (FEIS) was released for the new Tappan Zee Bridge project. The document which is available here http://www.newnybridge.com/documents/feis/index.html (scroll down to view; organized into individual pdfs by chapter), discusses the different options that are available for the proposed construction of the new bridge.
For more information about the different documents, studies and reports associated with this project, New York state has recently rolled out a website dedicated to this issue titled the The New NY Bridge http://www.newnybridge.com/index.shtml. Of interest to environmental and land use legal researchers, the site has a searchable archive http://www.newnybridge.com/documents/index.html which contains documents, hearing transcripts, handouts and reports on this issue dating back to 2000; it also contains news, calendars and contact information for individuals seeking to know more about the project.
There is one print copy of the FEIS at the Warner Library. Please ask at the Reference Desk. The documents must be viewed in the library. Patrons may make photocopies or use the library's computers to print pages from the Internet.
