The original K-Bridge, overlooking Newton Creek, was built in 1939, connecting the city of Brooklyn with Queens, New York. Phase I of this project was the addition of a new and first Cable-Stayed Bridge in New York City that carries an estimated 180 000 vehicles per day, in both directions until Phase II. The new bridge, designed by HNTB and constructed by the joint venture of SKE (Skanska-Kiewit-ECCO III) by has 2-single pylon designs with a 1000-ft main span, a 20-ft wide bike-lane/walkway, and five standard lanes for Queens-bound traffic. A lighting design system was also included to light up the towers at night.
