Salvaged TZB panels put to use in new projects
Fourteen deck panels salvaged from the old Tappan Zee Bridge are heading north for use in new projects.
Orange County's DPW plans to use the panels in four bridges and two rail-trail projects.
Thruway Authority officials sold 150 of the concrete-and-steel panels for $1 each to Public Works agencies that are willing to recycle them.
Orange County officials say the panels will save taxpayers about $770,000.
