Environmental watchdog group Riverkeeper has filed a notice of intent to sue over an increase in the deaths of Hudson River sturgeon that it says have been caused by construction of the new Tappan Zee Bridge, according to a story on lohud.com.

Both the New York State Thruway Authority and Tappan Zee Constructors LLC are specifically named in the notice, lohud.com said.
