Gramercy Bridge
Posted February 25, 2012, by Tom Hoffman (tehoffm [at] hotmail [dot] com)

This bridge shows that in the mid 1990s cantalievered bridges were still being built, such as this one and two in West Virgina. Even though this design is more expensive and cannot be widened, it is extremely monumental. Although there is one being constructed between Indiana and Kentucky, I don't much approve of it replacing an unusual type of bridge and wish the situation was handled differently. A cantalievered through truss can still be built even in this day.

The bridge was built in 1995, and untill further notice, it has only one exit on the south side of the river.
