TARRYTOWN, N.Y. – Tappan Zee Constructors LLC temporarily is halting marine construction operations and the movement of construction materials to prepare for the potential effects of Hurricane Joaquin, which forecasters say could hit the Hudson Valley region in the coming days.

In advance of the storm’s approach, the contractor is implementing its storm preparedness plans while securing the job site to prevent possible storm damage. By closely monitoring weather conditions and taking appropriate action in advance, the company will ensure both worker and public safety while minimizing any potential storm-related downtime on the project.

The inclement weather preparation protocols include having tug boats on the water at all times, inspecting and adjusting all mooring lines, inspecting crane barges and securing all equipment, moving the large majority of cranes to shallow water moorings and taking all smaller crew boats out of the water.

Gov. Andrew Cuomo activated the State Emergency Operations Center in Albany Thursday to monitor severe weather that is anticipated to impact southern parts of New York State beginning Thursday evening and potentially lasting through this weekend.
