(Corrects spelling of bridge in headline)

New York governor Andrew Cuomo named a selection review team for the new bridge to replace the Tappan Zee, group that includes artist Jeffrey Koons and architect Richard Meier.

The team will review proposed bridge designs as well as assist local community leaders and transportation experts in the evaluation process, Cuomo said today in a statement.

“For this project, we are creating a different kind of review team – it’s a team that combines technical experts, architectural experts, local experts as well as artists to ensure the new bridge is the best choice and fit for the region,” Cuomo said.
