    WILLIAMSBURG BRIDGE

    Construction began in 1896, at a cost of $ 12,000,000.
    The bridge is an unconventional structure, unlike other suspension bridges, although the main span hangs from cables in the usual way, the main span of the bridge is 488 m long. The entire bridge is 2,227 m long, and the deck is 36 m wide. The height in the center of the bridge is 41 m and each tower is 102 m.
