Tappan Zee Bridge Project Set to Open to the Public

The long-awaited replacement for New York City’s longest bridge, the Tappan Zee, is set to open, announced Governor Andrew Cuomo. After four years of construction, the first of the $4 billion dollar project’s twin two-span cable-stayed structures will welcome automobile as well as pedestrian and bicycle traffic for the first time.

Renamed the late Mario M. Cuomo (after Cuomo’s father, himself a former NY Governor), the 3.1 mile bridge replaces its 61-year-old steel truss counterpart, built at one of the widest points of the Hudson River, connecting the New York counties of Rockland and Westchester.
