“The new bridge — the first major New York City bridge to open in more than 50 years — will bring much-needed relief to commuters and be a spectacular addition to the New York City skyline,” Cuomo said.
“It is a vibrant symbol of how the state is not just talking about moving vital infrastructure projects forward, but actually getting them done and restoring New York’s tradition of excellence.”
Originally known as the Meeker Avenue Bridge, the Kosciuszko was built to serve only 10,000 daily vehicles, according to the state.
