A local lawmaker wants New York's newest bridge named after iconic folksinger Pete Seeger, who died Monday at age 94.
Greenburgh town supervisor Paul Feiner says the bridge being built over the Hudson River should be named after the late singer because he fought to save it from pollution.
Feiner hopes naming the bridge after Seeger will inspire travelers to keep the river clean.
The new bridge, scheduled to open in 2018, will replace the aging Tappan Zee Bridge, which links Rockland and Westchester Counties.
Feiner is sending his proposal to Albany.
