ICYMI: Scenes from around the Project Site

Wires? A huge bug? Nope. Per project officials, these are tubes that cooled the new bridge’s concrete pile caps via concrete cytalitic reaction. Too complex for me, suffice to say they helped make the new bridge stronger.

This colorful new view from steps near the clubhouse at Quay condominiums in Tarrytown differs from what residents living there saw when the project started.

Looking north from the Westchester landing, you can see piers from the Tappan Zee Bridge and the two new spans. The project slowed during the past few weeks due to bitterly cold temps that caused a frozen river.

Sweet photo. An astute eye snapped hungry mallard ducks befriending some of the crew. Before long, the Peregrine falcons will return to their home — on which bridge?

Rain, rain, go away. Come again another day. See this pipe affixed to the blue structural steel girders near the Westchester landing? It helps prevent flooding and is part of the new bridge’s drainage system.

I’d like to know what you think.
