The new Tappan Zee Bridge carrying I-87/I-287 over the Hudson River between Nyack and Tarrytown will be a $3.14 billion design-build replacement of the current bridge. The project includes parallel bridges approximately 3 miles long, including twin cables-stayed structures over the shipping channel. Approach structures primarily consist of 5-span continuous girder sub-stringer bridges with 350’ span lengths. The bridge is primarily founded on large diameter open-end pipe piles.
