Two hours north of the Tappan Zee Bridge, crews are putting together the huge steel beams that will help form the New NY Bridge. Over the next two years, plants in Pennsylvania, North Carolina, and Virginia will ship over 100,000 tons of steel to the Tappan Zee Constructors site at the Port of Coeymans Marine Terminal 115 miles north of Nyack. The finished product will be shipped down the river to the New NY Bridge construction site. The first girder arrived on June 11.
