NY Times: Cuomo offered enticements to bridge builders to finish before Dem. primary

09.12.18 | Brandon Dickson

The newspaper reports that a Thruway Authority official wrote a letter to the contractors in July directing that all work on the eastbound span of the Governor Mario M. Cuomo Bridge be completed so the bridge could fully open on August 24th.

Gubanitorial challenger Cynthia Nixon has called the move a dangerous and cheap political stunt that put the lives of New Yorkers in danger.

The governor denies the claim, calling it part of the "political silly season."
