The state Senate has passed a bill that would change the spelling, which has been wrong for over 50 years.
The Assembly version was still stuck in committee traffic when the legislative session ended late Wednesday.
The bridge name is spelled with one Z. It should have two Z’s for the Italian explorer Giovanni da Verrazzano, who discovered New York Harbor in 1524.
A Brooklyn College student started a petition drive to make things right in deference to Italian-Americans.
State officials initially balked, saying a bridge renaming can cost millions.
