Tappan Zee Bridge/I-287 Environmental Review

Alternatives Under Study

Alternative A - No Build Alternative:
Would maintain the existing bridge and highway. Both federal and state environmental regulations require consideration within a DEIS of a no build alternative, which functions as a baseline against which to measure the “build” alternatives.

Alternative B – Full-Corridor Busway and Rockland CRT:
Would provide BRT (Bus Rapid Transit) service between Suffern and Port Chester in a busway, and CRT service in Rockland County.

Alternative C – Busway in Rockland, Bus Lanes in Westchester, and Rockland CRT:
Would provide BRT service between Suffern and Port Chester via a BRT busway in Rockland County and BRT bus lanes in Westchester County, as well as provide CRT service in Rockland County.

Alternative D – BRT/HOV/HOT Lanes in Rockland, Busway in Westchester, and Rockland CRT:
Would provide BRT service between Suffern and Port Chester, via BRT in HOV/HOT lanes in Rockland County and BRT in a busway in Westchester County, as well as provide CRT service in Rockland County.

Alternative E – BRT/HOV/HOT Lanes in Rockland, Bus Lanes in Westchester, and Rockland CRT:
Would provide BRT service between Suffern and Port Chester via BRT in HOV/HOT lanes in Rockland County and BRT in bus lanes in Westchester County, as well as provide CRT service in Rockland County.
