 The New NY Bridge over Hudson River

By:   Milos Vasiljevic, PE


The $3.1 billion “New NY Bridge” is one of the largest and most complex bridge projects currently under construction in the US. The project includes two parallel, 3.1 mile-long bridges crossing the Hudson River between Rockland and Westchester Counties, approximately 25 miles north of New York City. Each of the two bridges consists of a 1,200-foot cable-stayed navigation span with common foundations and diverging towers, along with a series of 350-foot continuous, steel girder spans supported on seismic isolation bearings.  The presentation will describe important design considerations and provide an overview of the construction progress on the project.
