ASCE Honors NYC Bridges as Landmarks


Three of the country's greatest bridges, all in New York City, were designated by ASCE in 2009 as National Historic Civil Engineering Landmarks:

To commemorate their selection, ASCE and its Metropolitan Section held dedication ceremonies at each bridge on a single day -- April 9, 2010.  Joined by Met Section officers and New York City Department of Transportation officials, ASCE President Blaine D. Leonard unveiled Society landmark plaques at the base of each bridge. Learn about the dedication events as reported by the Met Section, and click on each of the bridges above to learn about what made them worthy of landmark status.
