Since opening to traffic in 1939, the Kosciuszko Bridge, which carries the Brooklyn-Queens Expressway over Newtown Creek between Brooklyn and Queens, NY, has developed a reputation as a major bottleneck for motorists. To improve travel times and enhance safety, the New York State Department of Transportation is replacing the existing 1.1-mile high-level truss bridge with a nine lane cable-stayed long-span structure, as part of a $555 million design-build effort. The new bridge will also include a pedestrian walkway and a bike lane.
