Millions of people cross these aging, deteriorating bridges every day. Are you one of them?

No. 4 NY Route 907C (Belt Parkway) Mill Basin Bridge, Brooklyn, NY

5 of 21

ADT: 142,600

SR: 3%

Opened in 1940, this Brooklyn span is the only drawbridge on New York’s Belt Parkway. Its outdated design has led to frustrations, including a major traffic jam caused in July 2012 when the bridge became stuck in the up position for more than an hour. Construction is just beginning on a new, 60-foot-tall fixed bridge to replace the Mill Basin Bridge; cars will continue to use the old structure until the new one is complete in 2017.
