A Fluor Enterprises-led team -- called Tappan Zee Constructors and including Granite Construction Northeast, American Bridge Co., and Traylor Bros. -- will design and build the new Tappan Zee Bridge across the Hudson River at an estimated cost of $3.142 billion. The design features "two pairs of tapering H-shaped pylons supporting the main span." The team's plan "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," Gov. Andrew Cuomo said.
