Bridge, Rising

This is the "New NY Bridge Project to replace the Tappan Zee Bridge."  It has been underway for a while.  It is a conventional bridge for most of its span, but there is an elevated section for ships to pass under in the center.  The section with the tall concrete  towers is called a cable-stayed span.  They have started adding some of the cables which you can see if you enlarge this photo.  This is an amazing project which costs 3.9 billion dollars.  Do you think our taxes will be going up?
