TARRYTOWN, N.Y. (AP) - The company building the $3.9 billion replacement of the Tappan Zee Bridge says it’s taking steps to limit noise from pile driving near shore.

The Journal News reports (https://lohud.us/1GoDrLT ) Tappan Zee Constructors said Monday it has been testing noise mitigation measures to reduce noise levels by more than 10 decibels.

The company is installing sheet piles over the next two weeks. Noise from sheet pile installation last summer led work to shut down for more than a month. South Nyack officials set up their own noise monitor during the loud installation.

Company officials say a noise shroud will be placed over the hammer and a temporary sound barrier will separate the work and residents.
