Is anyone going to see the (old) Tappan Zee Bridge being exploded on January 12 at 9:30 AM? Remember to take photos!
If a weather system hits the area this Saturday as predicted; such might be postponed.
Fingers crossed.

"The sustained winds caused delays to the preparatory work of the planned demolition operation," read a statement from Tappan Zee Constructors. "We appreciate the patience of the local community, and once we have rescheduled the operation we will provide an update."

I have never heard of this junction (never been to LI), but judging by the aerial photos, it looks like a mess with that double merge.

It is interesting to see that all options are on the table in those cutaways. I doubt 75% of them will be considered.
It's a total disaster that NYSDOT knows they could've avoided, but they wanted to build it in a way that didn't piss off the environmental lobby. Plan V-3 is the best of them, but even that needs some modifications. One of which is to have the west end of Montauk Highway and the entrance to Connetquot River State Park in an intersection with the service roads. The other is to reduce the number of on and off ramps between Connetquot Avenue and Locust Avenue. NY 27A/Connetquot River State Park and Suffolk CR 85 should strictly be Exit 47. There should be no Exit 46A, no Exit 47A, and no unnumbered exits to minor roads and local businesses.

And all the button copy remaining at the I-684, I-84 JCT has now been replaced.  So this is gone.

One thing that has always amazed me is that 3 unique "French Roads" intersect with Transit Road (NY 78) in Erie County. There's French Road in Depew, French Road in Cheektowaga, and North French Road in Amherst.

One of my friends posted this video on Facebook from 1939 of snowplowing in the Tug Hill area and a couple of towns east of Syracuse:

So that's why they call them snow plow "riders"!
