Watch: Demo explosions drop old New York bridge gracefully into Hudson

NEW YORK — Explosions sent the old Tappan Zee bridge straight down into the Hudson River on Jan. 15.

A report by ABC says  the bridge was replaced by the Gov. Mario M. Cuomo Bridge, which carries I-87 traffic over the Hudson River about 30 miles north of New York City.

The bridge remained half-submerged after the demolition, the report states. Crews will extract the pieces for recycling.
