NEWBURGH, N.Y. (AP) - A New York-based company plans to build a port on its Hudson River waterfront property so it can transport decking for the new Tappan Zee Bridge.

The Times Herald-Record of Middletown reports (http://bit.ly/1gwMxKZ ) that officials from Steelways Inc. will join federal, state and local officials Friday morning to announce the project planned for the city of Newburgh’s waterfront.

Newburgh-based Steelways designs and manufactures steel used for bridges, marine infrastructure and pools.

The company plans to bid Friday to supply precast concrete decking for the new Tappan Zee Bridge. The decking would be made at Steelways‘ 60-acre waterfront complex in Newburg and shipped 30 miles downriver to the construction site.

Company officials say the Newburgh project could bring 150 jobs to the cash-strapped city over the next three years.
