President Anderson said, "We are pleased to say that Governor Cuomo is already showing the way with the new Tappan Zee Bridge
project and its highly effective use of design-build; a new LaGuardia Airport, which is being built with one of the nation's largest public-private partnerships; his far-reaching capital programs for the Metropolitan Transportation Authority and the New York State Department of Transportation; a new Gateway Tunnel Project in cooperation with Amtrak and the State of New Jersey; and the proposal to transform Penn Station and Moynihan Station into a world class transportation hub."
Cuomo held up his recently-completed Tappan Zee Bridge
replacement as a model for the project and Trump, for his part, has pushed for greater private sector involvement in infrastructure projects.
Cuomo Bridge opened last month, linking New York and New Jersey over the Hudson River and succeeding the Tappan Zee Bridge
. The New York State Thruway Authority, in partnership with the Fluor Corp.-led joint venture of Tappan Zee Constructors, LLC (TZC) replaced the old steel trestle-style structure with a 3.1-mile, twin-span bridge between Westchester and Rockland counties.
