Photos: Chunk of Tappan Zee Bridge demolished

Part of the Tappan Zee Bridge was demolished by explosives Tuesday in Tarrytown, New York. The span was already replaced by the new Gov. Mario M. Cuomo Bridge over the Hudson River.

There are plans to dismantle the western part of the Tappan Zee without explosives sometime in 2019, The Associated Press reported.
