(New York, NY) -- Drivers will soon be able to travel across the new Tappan Zee Bridge.
Governor Andrew Cuomo announced this morning that Rockland-bound traffic will be moved onto the first span on August 25th. Westchester-bound traffic will then likely be diverted in September. The old bridge will then be torn down while the second span is completed. The nearly four-billion-dollar bridge will be completed sometime next year, with eastbound traffic flowing on one span and westbound traffic on the other.
Governor Cuomo recently renamed it the Governor Mario M. Cuomo Bridge after his father.
