The latest batch of aerial photography reveals the most recent efforts of Tappan Zee Constructors on the Hudson River, including the early stages of the old bridge’s dismantling.
The work includes removing the concrete roadway panels from the old bridge, as well as cutting the structure’s steel into large segments before removing them with barge-based cranes. The project’s super crane is being used to remove the largest steel segments, weighing up to 1,300 tons.
The dismantling of the old bridge will allow the project team to connect the second span of the Governor Mario M. Cuomo Bridge to land at both shores next year.
