Brooklyn Bridge Question

Recommended Posts

How come only the Brooklyn bridge has direct ramps to FDR Drive and Park Row but the other bridges which are newer have no direct connections? You would think the opposite would be true.

The Brooklyn Bridge had the most traffic out of all of them, so it got the connections.

I always thought they would have put them on the Williamsburg Bridge since that was at one point going to be I-78 through brooklyn.

I wish it was I-78 through Brooklyn.. there are no good connections whatsoever.

Would the JR Parkway been part of the I-87?

With the current layout Broadway would be I-78 and the JR Parkway possibly part of 78 as well as parts of the Grand Central and Northern State Parkway

Incorrect, the Interboro(Jackie Robinson) Parkway and the Grand Central were never considered to become interstate highways. 78 would have went down Conduit Blvd (the reason for that large, empty median) used teh Nassau Expressway (which would have been constructed in both directions, instead of just one, and then turned up on a Clearview Expressway extension and up the Throggs Neck bridge where it would have ended at I-95
