Progress on the Tappan Zee, November 2017

I posted on the Tappan Zee in April 2016 and June 2016. I am so jealous of my friend Al M., who gets to see the progress from a train on the way to work!

Here’s the bridge in April 2016, from the east side of the Hudson.

By November 2017, one of the new roadways was now open, carrying all traffic. The old bridge was being demolished. This photo was taken from the west bank of the Hudson. If you zoom in, you can see that there’s no traffic on the old bridge, just construction vehicles.

This was taken while crossing the bridge. The second new cable-stay span, between the span we’re on and the old bridge, is still under construction.

About Dianne L. Durante

I constantly seek out art that's inspiring, thought-provoking, skillfully executed, and/or beautiful so I can share it (in jargon-free language) with others who need and enjoy such art, but don't have time to search for it themselves. As an independent scholar, writer, and lecturer, I focus on art history and history, with forays into food, history, politics, and publishing. My most recent projects are three volumes on Alexander Hamilton, From Portraits to Puddles, Central Park: The Early Years, Innovators in Sculpture (a survey of 5,000 years of art in 2 hours), and videoguide apps by Guides Who Know. Click on the Books & Essays tab for a list of all books. For upcoming projects, see my Patreon page.
