    Itís due.

    As I understand it the bridge was built with a weaker steel than otherwise might have been used for such a structure, due to the shortage of steel during the early 50ís, a result of the Korean War. It was intended to last 50 years and went near 62.

    The state got lucky getting the new bridge up and running.

    Memories.

    I'm not from the area, and have been "stuck" on the Tappan Zee in the past, but it had always been a "landmark" in my travels further east.

    The new bridge is much nicer looking than the old. More graceful looking, less like an erector set.

    Has a bike lane on it as well, due to open this summer. Gonna be cool to ride that.
