Director of NYU's Rudin Center Interviewed On Cost Overruns for Tappan Zee Bridge

Director of the NYU Wagner Rudin Center For Transportation Policy and Management, Elliot Sander, was cited in a recent article in The Journal News newspaper. Describing cost overruns for repair work on the Tappan Zee Bridge, Sander said, �There are times where cost overruns can be justified. On the other hand, there are times when you have a bad contractor or engineering plans have not been done right, where you should not be having a cost overrun.� Sander, former Commissioner of the New York City Department of Transportation, noted that repair work on the Tappan Zee would be more complicated than building an entirely new bridge as the officials have to coordinate repair work and traffic flow patterns.
