The iconic Tappan Zee Bridge was demolished today and boy was it like a whole movie scene!
State contractors used explosive charges to detonate vertical support columns on the eastern support portion of the bridge, sending the structure crashing into the Hudson River. A set of orange buoys on the water were connected to netting to help control the debris once it hit the water.
The steel from the bridge will be recovered by chains that have been laid on the riverbed, according to officials.
The demolition was streamed live at 11AM this morning.
