Governor Andrew M. Cuomo today announced that the second span of the Kosciuszko Bridge will open in September 2019, a full four years ahead of schedule and on budget. The bridge, part of an $873 million design-build construction project, is the first new bridge built in New York City since the Verrazzano-Narrows Bridge opened to traffic in 1964. Once complete, the new bridge will encompass five Queens-bound travel lanes and four Brooklyn-bound travel lanes of the Brooklyn-Queens Expressway, plus a 20-foot-wide bikeway/walkway on the Brooklyn-bound span with spectacular views of Manhattan. The project has helped to support approximately 11,300 jobs in construction and related fields in the New York City metropolitan region.
