Old Tappan Zee bridge finds new life underwater

Premiered: August 29, 2018 | 0:06:06

After its long life serving the commuters of New York, the old Tappan Zee is going underwater, where it will serve the marine life from the south shore of Long Island reef. Our partners at MetroFocus talk to Bill Ulfelder, executive director of The Nature Conservancy in New York, about how the bridge will help bring back marine life, better protect us during climate change, and boost the economy.
