George Washington Bridge

DVD - 2004
Rate this:
When opened on Oct. 25, 1931, the George Washington Bridge was the longest suspension bridge in the world. At 3,500 feet in length, the main span was more than double the distance of the previous record holder. Today, the GW is the main traffic artery between Manhattan and New Jersey, the busiest in the world carrying nearly 320,000 cars every day. Examine the construction methods employed that made the bridge an anomaly, coming in both under budget and ahead of schedule. In a city of great bridges, the GW has distinguished itself with those who depend on it most.
