Tappan Zee Constructors recently lowered and removed the center of the old bridge’s main span.
Our new video captures the day-long operation, which implemented eight hydraulic strand jacks to lower the 4,750-ton section of steel.
TZC has transported the main span section south of the bridge for further disassembly. TZC will also proceed with more dismantling operations on the main span in the coming weeks.
To learn more about the project, visit the New NY Bridge construction viewing platforms at Scenic Hudson RiverWalk Park in Tarrytown or at Memorial Park in Nyack. Can’t make it in person?
