OSSINING — Concrete panels from the old Tappan Zee Bridge will be used in infrastructure projects in nine municipalities.

Gov. Andrew Cuomo released a statement on the decision, saying, "The Tappan Zee Bridge will live on as part of critical bridge and infrastructure projects across this great state. Re-using materials from the bridge to support local communities is another example of smart, cost-effective governance."

Cuomo says that the 13-foot-wide, 50-foot-long panels will save the municipalities an estimated $4.1 million.

Besides the deck panels, recycled bridge materials will be used to expand and support the state's environmental conservation in reef sites off of the shores of Long Island.
