Little of Old Tappan Zee Bridge Remains

Real Estate In-Depth | January 2019

On Jan. 15, Tappan Zee Constructors, the contractor for the new Tappan Zee Bridge (Mario M. Cuomo Bridge), lowered the 672-foot section of steel, using charges to deliberately fail vertical members supporting the span. Portions of the old east anchor span, currently above the water line, will remain visible as it is removed from the Hudson River by marine salvage experts.
