NY metro area Bridges and Tunnels trivia

Recommended Posts

Okay guys, this is the New York metro area bridges and tunnels trivia thread!

Allow us to begin:

-If the Lower Manhattan Expressway had been built, what designation would the Manhattan Bridge carry?

-How many levels did the Verrazano-Narrows Bridge have in 1965?

-Had the Bushwick Expressway be built, what designation would the Williamsburg Bridge carry?

-How many tubes does the Lincoln Tunnel have?

-How many lanes does the George Washington Bridge carry?

at the time the Manhattan bridge had NY Route 27, the interstate designation would have been 478 since 27A at the time was on the Battery Tunnel.

 

It had one level in 1965

 

Williamsburg bridge had I-78

 

The Lincoln tunnel has 3 tubes

 

The GWB has 12 lanes, three in each direction on each level.

1) I-78

2) 2 levels. The lower level wasn't open yet though.

3) I-78. The Buswick Expressway was supposed to connect to the Low-mex via the Manhattan and Williamsburg Bridges

4) 3 tubes

5) 14 Lanes. 8 upper level, 6 Lower level

Well, still we have to credit the Holland Tunnel because Ole Singstad and Clifford Milburn Holland are the guys who made the Tunnel Ventilation System possible thus the Brooklyn Battery and many tunnels to come possible. Thanks to the guys and Holland Tunnel where the experiment took place, we now can have less smoggy tunnels!

Then the question is flawed. Longest and oldest couldn't be in the same question for that type of structure.
