Bridge Update

The long delayed Kosciuszko Bridge replacement project is well underway. The towers for the eastbound bridge (above) already dwarf our beloved but outdated bridgelet. And the roadway on the Queens side is being laid (below). If the project stays on schedule, this Queensbound span will open in early 2017, followed by the (sob) removal of the existing bridge later that year.
You can read all this and much more in September Project Update newsletter on the NYS DOT site. I was pleased that the newsletter is available in Polish as well as English and Spanish, a nod to the Greenpoint community and also to the General.
