Bridge Documentation

View Archived National Bridge Inventory Report - Has Additional Details and Evaluation

This bridge, having been built in the 1960s, is not a very old bridge to be considered historic, however as a large steel arch bridge it does indeed have some historic value. In addition, it is an attractive structure, and it does feature rivets as the primary (if not exclusive) fastener type on the bridge. Rivets are now a historic fastener type, only used in high quality historic bridge restoration projects. It also is visually appropriate for its location, since it compliments the two much older historic arch bridges nearby on the Harlem River.

Structurally, this bridge is two arch bridges side by side sharing a single deck.
