Map of Triborough Bridge

The Details

The Robert F Kennedy (Triborough) Bridge is one of the key parts of the New York transportation system. On average, over 200,000 vehicles, including cars and trucks, pass over the bridge every day.

The bridge is actually part of a system of roads that connect major roadways in NYC. The Robert F Kennedy Bridge design includes the FDR highway, I-87, as well as the transport junction at Wards and Randals, the road lines go from:

  • vertical drawbridge - goes to Manhattan via Harlem;

  • truss bridge - connects the Bronx Kill and the Bronx;

  • wire suspension bridge - located from Hell Gate to Queens.

The Bridge today

The bridge was previously known as the Triborough bridge. But in 2008, the city council decided to rename it Robert F Kennedy Bridge in honor of Robert Kennedy, the famous 20th century US politician.

Robert F Kennedy is not only a highway. Every year, the bridge is visited by tens of thousands of tourists from all over the world.

Robert F Kennedy Bridge

The Robert F Kennedy Bridge was designed as early as 1916 by engineer Edward A. Byrne. It was not immediately implemented due to the fact that the coordination with the local authorities was delayed for an indefinite period. But after nine years of litigation with the city council, Edward, the future creator of engineering ingenuity, however managed to launch the project, and in 1925 construction began.

With the Robert F Kennedy bridge, there was another failure. During the stock market crash on October 24, 1929, when there were problems with financing, the project was paused. To save their creation, a group of engineers made an ultimate project check.

After a number of changes, it was decided to simplify the structures, lighten the towers and piers. This helped save money. A year later, the project was revived, and in 1936 the Robert F Kennedy bridge was opened to automobile traffic.
