This concrete-and-steel structure paralleling the East River in Midtown hasn’t been reconstructed since it was built in 1966. As a fracture-critical bridge, its vital features require inspection every 12 months—instead of the more standard two years—and a July 2011 inspection recommended the bridge undergo a deck rehabilitation. The New York City Transportation Coordinating Committee endorsed a proposed $230 million replacement in early 2013, but construction has yet to begin.
