Hmm... Did I miss something?
Can I play with it now? Huh, can I?
“...plan which offers New York toll payers the biggest bang for their buck with the best price, shortest construction time, minimal dredging, and can accommodate mass transit in the future.....”
Bull Obama. NY is a corrupt liberal state.
Should read, “...plan which offers kickbacks to the Obamadork, New York Liberal politicians, their cohart felons, and unions, a totally incalculable construction time, much dredging for additional bucks, and may be able to accommodate a car or two within the next twenty years...”
If this bridge ever gets built, I bet the cost will be more like 10-15 billion dollars.
I would PERSONALLY carry a man to the moon for a third of that.
Oh well. There goes the idea of a rail crossing into Rockland County, which actually dates back to when the New York & Erie Railroad first built into Piermont with an eye to crossing the Hudson at that location one day. Would have been nice to have seen a revitalization of the old Erie RR Piermont branch, as well as a possible direct link from the Port Jervis line into Grand Central (and for freight trains into the Bronx and Queens), but that is what happens when you let government step all over things.
$3.1 billion + 2% for cost over runs + another 3% for unexpected costs = $24 billion.
That’ll be about right for an honest state like New York.
So, will it made pre-fab in China and shipped to NYC for installation?
