Silos Collapse At Concrete Plant Near New Bridge


Builders say three silos have failed or collapsed on a floating concrete plant at the site of the new Tappan Zee Bridge.

Tappan Zee Constructors spokeswoman Carla Julian, says in an email there were no injuries in the accident Tuesday on the Hudson River.

Concrete is made at the site to save the time and cost of trucking. The silos hold raw materials such as crushed stone.

Julian said one of the silos failed, which caused two others to collapse. She said the state Thruway Authority and Department of Environmental Conservation are investigating.
