“Rockland County marked a milestone in 2017 with the opening of one span of the new Tappan Zee Bridge. We look forward to the opening of the second span in 2018, which will mark the end of one stage of this nearly $4 billion project. That’s not all. We eagerly await a dedicated bus lane to take our residents over the new bridge faster. As part of the bridge project, the state is planning the Lower Hudson Transit Link, which will improve transit options from Suffern in Rockland County to Port Chester in Westchester County. The additional technological improvements that the Lower Hudson Transit Link project will provide, such as ramp metering, queue jump lanes, and transit signal priority for buses are also improvements that we look forward to in the coming year. And we’re not giving up hope for a commuter rail line — someday.”
