UPDATE: As Sue Klein used to ask, "Tappan Zee Bridge?" (Tappan Zee Neu Bridge)
And the bridge is rising.
A Colossal Bridge Will Rise Across the Hudson (includes slide show). (The New York Times, 1/19/2014. )
Some people say, "It's about time!" Now after years of public argument and indecision, the first new colossal steel bridge in the New York area since the Verrazano is finally beginning to rise over one of the most spacious stretches of the Hudson River, a replacement for the decaying Tappan Zee, the longest bridge in the state, and Mr. Capobianco, 51, is its project manager.
The $3.1 billion replacement is scheduled to be completed in 2018.
Celebrating the opening of the $60,000,000 bridge in 1955.
