The old bridge is being dismantlement while the new bridge is wider and modern - instead of having to use the Tappan Zee as in the past, it is now a great experience.

The Tappan Zee Bridge has a contemptible record of delays, and is simply an intimidating experience for commuters and/or new drivers would wish to go someplace over the bridge.

whoever designed this bridge should have their head examined. There are always delays,and maintenance is extremely weak. Given all that, which crossing into NY is the fastest? Sorry to say, the Tappan Zee is still the best.Avoid rush hour at all costs

First time driving over. toll was 4.75 and billable by mail or EZ pass. Nice because its alot cheaper than the tunnels into NYC (example from jersey). Looks pretty busy leaving tarrytown in the evenings. Very cool looking also.

The Tappan Zee bridge is currently being taken down. A new bridge with a new name is going up next to it. Check out sunset behind the Tappan Zee from the Hudson River Walk.

The new bridge is just magnificent. Looking forward to it's completion and the lanes properly paved. The concern is the merge in both directions, as it now seems to bottleneck, when the lanes changeover. The name of the bridge will always be the TZ to...More

Drivers pay only going east and on the east side of the river. It is possible that if you don't have EZ-Pass you have to pay by mail. That seems to be the transition under way in NY State at other toll booths. You can... More
