Tappan Zee Bridge memorial thread
#1
Another cantilever bridge is gonna be demolished on Saturday, this time it’s the old Tappan Zee bridge north of New York City. Sad to see these old and cool bridges getting wiped out to be replaced by concrete behemoths that look terrible.

RIP
1955-2019

Locals are still probably going to call it Tappan Zee bridge anyways. It's named after someone in Governor Cuomo's family (which I personally dislike him for how he's been messing up New York state)

Government Cuomo also eliminated toll plazas in some parts of New York and replaced them with gantries, causing my parents to think the Grand Island Bridges are now free, before they realized their invoice was sent to them weeks after my trip to Niagara Falls in 2018.

This picture shows one of the two gantries that replaced the toll booths at the Grand Island Bridges.  Before going through that gantry for the first time, I tried to tell my parents that crossing the bridge is not free, AT ALL!  At the time, they seem to disrespect my opinion, saying that it is free when it really is not.

Yes they do, it’s just scrap metal which the demolition team will put on a barge most likely

the old bridge was weird cause going west the lanes merged all wrong. the new bridge should allow for future growth, that bridge was absolutely terrible most of the day most days, i speak from experience
