ALBANY – The state has released the list of four qualified competitive bidders for the new Tappan Zee Bridge over the Hudson River.
Statements of qualifications were received from five design-build consortiums and four groups were deemed qualified after a thorough multi-agency technical review.
The qualified bidder groups include:
- Hudson River Bridge Constructors, a group including Dragados USA, Inc., Flatiron Constructors, Inc., Samsung C&T, E&C Americas, Inc., and Yonkers Contracting Company, Inc.
- Kiewit-Skanska-Weeks Joint Venture, comprised of Kiewit Infrastructure Co., Skanska USA Civil Northeast Inc., and Weeks Marine, Inc.
- Tappan Zee Bridge Partners, a Bechtel/Tutor Perini Joint Venture, comprised of Bechtel Infrastructure Corporation and Tutor Perini Corporation
- Tappan Zee Constructors, comprised of Fluor Enterprises, Inc., American Bridge Company, Granit Construction Northeast, Inc. and Traylor Bros., Inc.
After design-build proposals are submitted and reviewed, one of the four short-listed consortiums will be selected later this year to construct the new bridge.
The short-listing “marks a significant milestone” in the push to build the new structure, said State Transportation Commissioner Joan McDonald.
Howard Milstein, the chairman of the New York State Thruway Authority, termed this “the single largest bridge project in its modern history.”
