Mobile River Bridge Team Travels to New York for Peer Exchange

Members of the Mobile River Bridge team traveled to New York to meet with the New York State Thruway, Port Authority and FHWA for a peer exchange from March 27 – 31. The goal of the peer exchange was to learn about the best practices used on a similar project, Tappan Zee Bridge, which shares a similar scale and scope of our major project. The New York State Thruway shared extremely valuable information regarding project financing, NEPA document completion, project staffing requirements, lessons learned and how design and construction has been coordinated to advance the project. The information gathered from this trip will be used to help deliver the Mobile River Bridge project in a timely and cost effective manner.
