ALBANY – State Senator James Skoufis (D, Cornwall), Monday, said his Senate Committee on Investigations and Government Operations and the Committees on Contracts and Procurement; Corporations, Authorities and Commissions; and Transportation, have “issued an information and document request to Tappan Zee Constructors.”

His brief statement did not provide specifics; however, it is believed to deal with the issue of the safety of bolts on the Mario Cuomo Tappan Zee Bridge.

Skoufis said the Thruway Authority “has been cooperative with our inquiry into the Governor Mario M. Cuomo Bridge and has shared significant documentation over the past seven weeks.”

The Thruway Authority has repeatedly said the twin-span bridge over the Hudson River between Westchester and Rockland counties is perfectly safe and that experts have examined the bolts and found them to pose absolutely no problem with the structures.
