Final Steel Truss Section of TZB is Now Gone

Another steel truss section of the bridge we will miss went bye-bye last week. The above photo shows the final section that was once underneath the roadway we used to drive on.

Although the trusses are barged elsewhere, one section of the old bridge’s steel cage can be recognized south of the new bridge. Crews are disassembling the 10-million pound, 532-foot section in the river.

While the super crane was dispatched to the Bronx to help Amtrak, it’s still on the project and will continue to help crews dismantle the Tappan Zee Bridge so the new bridge’s eastbound span, now one solid piece from Rockland to Westchester, can finally be finished.

I’d like to know what you think.
