Tappan Zee Bridge
The Tappan Zee Bridge, officially named the Governor Mario M. Cuomo Bridge after the former New York governor, is a twin cable-stayed bridge spanning the Tappan Zee section of the Hudson River between Tarrytown and Nyack in the U.S. state of New York. It was built to replace the original Tappan Zee Bridge, which was located just to the south. The new bridge’s north span carries the northbound and westbound automobile traffic of the New York State Thruway, Interstate 87 (I-87) and I-287; it also carries a shared use path for bicycles and pedestrians. The south span carries southbound and eastbound automobile traffic.

The Tappan Zee Bridge, spanning the Hudson River, holds a rich history that intertwines with the growth and development of the state.
The Tappan Lenape indiginous tribe of the Hudson Valley region had a rich culture that we honor and preserve today.
Pressure on lawmakers is building to rename the Mario M. Cuomo Bridge, potentially back to the Tappan Zee.
