Probably on the inner spans.

The new bridge will carry eight general traffic lanes (four each on the westbound and eastbound spans), breakdown/emergency lanes,
space for future bus rapid transit and commuter rail, and an advanced traffic monitoring system.

It's a looker for sure. The cable stay bridges are far more futuristic in appearance than suspension bridges I think, they just have that clean modern look to them and the fan of cables are very high-tech expressionist.

NY Daily News says the old Tappan Zee Bridge is closed and all traffic, in both directions, is now redirected over the West-Bound new bridge span. The last car to travel the old bridge was a 1929 Ford Phaeton.

Does anyone know anything about the discoloration of the concrete in the towers? The variation in tone occurs between pours - is this a matter of the concrete curing, or will the bridge always look a bit naff?
