Kosciuszko Bridge Progress, 5

For earlier photos, click on the Bridges tag in the Obsessions cloud at right, and my video of the bridge’s progress.

The Queens-bound side of the Kosciuszko Bridge, with its towers in Brooklyn, has carried all BQE traffic since 2017. Now the roadway is being constructed for the Brooklyn-bound side.

The towers for the other half of the bridge, which sit on the Queens side of Newtown Creek, are almost completed.

As the lower cables go in, the roadway is extending from the tower to meet the roadway approaching from either side.

About Dianne L. Durante

I constantly seek out art that's inspiring, thought-provoking, skillfully executed, and/or beautiful so I can share it (in jargon-free language) with others who need and enjoy such art, but don't have time to search for it themselves. As an independent scholar, writer, and lecturer, I focus on art history and history, with forays into food, history, politics, and publishing. My most recent projects are three volumes on Alexander Hamilton, From Portraits to Puddles, Central Park: The Early Years, Innovators in Sculpture (a survey of 5,000 years of art in 2 hours), and videoguide apps by Guides Who Know. Click on the Books & Essays tab for a list of all books. For upcoming projects, see my Patreon page.
