Tappan Zee Traffic Slow to Return to Normal after Crane Accident

The Journal News (Westchester County) reports that traffic is slowly returning to normal after last week’s construction crane collapse on the Tappan Zee Bridge. “Traffic has finally eased . . . . now that all seven lanes are back in service, but drivers faced heavy delays over the span [Monday morning, July 25]. Westchester-bound traffic was backed up from the bridge to Exit 14 for the Garden State Parkway for much of this morning’s commute.” Part of the wreckage remains visible on the new replacement span, according to the report.
