COEYMANS, N.Y.—The Port of Coeymans has been awarded a multi-year contract with Tappan Zee Constructors LLC for the construction of the New NY Bridge.
The bridge will replace the Tappan Zee toll bridge that opened in 1995, and nearly 200 jobs will be created from the project.
"We are proud of our partnership with TZC and are fortunate to provide further job opportunities for the local community and region. We have the expertise, industry knowledge, available property, equipment and materials to help see this major bridge project through to completion," said Carver Laraway, president and owner, Carver Companies.
The Port is currently in discussions for additional contracts, such as concrete and mechanical systems, with the New NY Bridge project, which would bring more jobs to Coeymans.
