Old Bridge Span Dismantled, Shipped Down Creek

Location: New York, NY
July 26, 2017

The old main span of the Kosciuszko Bridge is lowered onto two barges lashed together and held into position by a pair of tugboats, Tuesday, July 25, 2017, on Newtown Creek in New York. In order to lower the bridge, crews removed the concrete median barrier, sidewalks, and light poles, and installed temporary steel towers at each of the four corners of the main span. Steel cables will be used to lower the span approximately 125 feet onto the barges.
