Queensboro - 59th Street Bridge

NYguy Feb 19, 2010 8:59 AM

Was looking at some designs for the "Peace Bridge" between Canada and the US earlier (renderings can be found here).

Back in the City, the often talked about replacement of the Kosciuszko Bridge gives us these options to view...

A Tired Old Bridge Gets a New Look. No, Four of Them.

http://graphics8.nytimes.com/images/...m-blogSpan.jpg
Kosciuszko Bridge design option No. 1: a cable-stayed bridge.

http://graphics8.nytimes.com/images/...m-blogSpan.jpg
Kosciuszko Bridge option No. 2: through-arch design

http://graphics8.nytimes.com/images/...m-blogSpan.jpg
Bridge option 3: box girder design.

http://graphics8.nytimes.com/images/...m-blogSpan.jpg
Kosciuszko Bridge option 4: the deck arch.

http://graphics8.nytimes.com/images/...m-blogSpan.jpg
Not an option: the existing Kosciuszko Bridge.


Quote:

Four renderings, presented at a public meeting at a Christ the King High School in Queens and reproduced here, offer drivers a range of aesthetic options, from the grimly or primly utilitarian to the relatively fanciful.

Functionally, the new designs are all the same, in that they will vastly increase the Kosciuszko’s ability to carry cars. No more will the five southbound lanes of BQE and Long Island Expressway traffic strain to stuff themselves on a three-lane bridge. The new bridge will have five lanes toward Brooklyn and four toward Queens, up from three and three in the current configuration.

The agency expects to begin construction in 2014 and finish several years later. The new bridge — actually two spans, one in each direction — will be built beside the old one to minimize inconvenience.

The federal government is picking up most of the tab, but, in an indication of the magnitude of the project, the cash-strapped state allocated $400 million for the bridge in its latest five-year plan.

What Thursday’s presentation at Christ the King may have lacked in patriotic fervor, it partly made up for in public engagement. About 40 people attended the afternoon session, and at least as many were expected in the evening, said another transportation department spokesman, Adam Levine. Attendees were given a DVD allowing them to virtually experience, video-game style, the thrill of driving across each of the four hypothetical bridges.

Of those who cast votes, Mr. Levine said, sentiment was about evenly divided between the four designs.

“Some people like the box girder and the deck arch because they want something low-profile,” he said. “Some people like the cable-stay or the through-arch, because they want to see something on the skyline.”

You can never have enough cable-stayed bridges.

NYguy Feb 20, 2010 3:16 PM

^ If Robert Moses had his way, there would be more bridges. That's not necessarily a good thing, but not necessarily bad either.

I like it also. People mostly think of New York as a skyscraper town, and it is. But it's also a city of and in the water, held together by its subways and bridges. The big skyscrapers are mainly contained to Manhattan. The bridges are all over town.
