Willis Avenue Bridge

Funny thing about this swing bridge is that we’ve confused it so many times for the 3rd Ave Bridge. Mainly because it’s in the same area and its Bronx entrances are so close to each other. For the longest time we’ve thought them to be the same, even though we’ve crossed over both so many times.

The bridge’s ends are at: 125th St./1st Ave in Manhattan & 132nd St. in The Bronx.

Construction Duration: 1897-1901
Total Length (including approaches): 3,212 feet
Width: 60 feet
# of Traffic Lanes: 4 lanes
Steel used in Construction: 6,213 tons
Cost to build: $2.5 million
Clearance above water: 24 feet
