Bridge Crossing

New York City is undertaking a $600+ million rebuilding of the Willis Avenue Bridge that connects the Bronx with Manhattan not too far from Yankee Stadium. The new bridge wasn't built on site, but instead constructed entirely off-site in the upstate New York port of  Coeymans. The bridge was then floated down the Hudson River on two barges and stayed in Bayonne for two weeks getting additional work.

This morning, it was floated up the East River to where it will eventually be installed.
New York's newest bridge is crossing under one of New York's oldest (and certainly most recognizable bridge - the Brooklyn Bridge).
