When you rush to open a bridge before an election
From NBC 4:
Officials plan to open the second span of the Gov. Mario M. Cuomo Bridge after delays caused by concerns over the stability of the old Tappan Zee Bridge, officials said Sunday.
The Tappan Zee is damaged but stable with "certain key components highly stressed," said Terry Towle, president of Tappan Zee Constructors.
Even if the bridge does fall, it won't affect boat traffic in the water or the new bridge, Towle said.
The span is scheduled to open Tuesday evening, weather permitting, Towle said. That means the bridge will effectively be open for the Wednesday morning commute.
"Even if the bridge does fall"... Alrighty!
