Governor Andrew M. Cuomo today announced the final steel section of the old Tappan Zee Bridge has been removed. The removal of the last piece of superstructure of the old bridge is another historic milestone in the project to build the 3.1-mile Governor Mario M. Cuomo Bridge, an iconic twin-span cable-stayed crossing linking Westchester and Rockland counties across the Hudson River that fully opened to traffic last summer. The 600-foot-long, 5,500-ton west anchor span — the old bridge's last span above water — was lowered onto barges using strand jacks during a dismantling operation that began late Thursday afternoon.
