Tarrytown, NY 2017
There's a major construction project underway to replace the original Tappan Zee Bridge which is the cantilever bridge shown in the background here. The original bridge opened in 1955 and cost a mere $81 million dollars in 1950's dollars. The new bridge is scheduled to open in 2018 and features the 419 foot tall Chamfered Towers which will support 8 lanes of traffic across the Hudson River. It is designed to last over a century without major structural modifications and will cost $3.98 billion dollars. It has been a long time in coming.
