ABSTRACT
The author reflects on the results of the much-delayed Tappan Zee bridge study in New York. She argues that the results of the study were disappointing and that the study team need a much sharper pencil in the cost estimates of the project. She recounts that the project was discredited because it was considered to be unworkable due to the excessive need for flyovers.
