The New York City Department of Transportation recently revamped and reconstructed the Robert Moses era Brooklyn Belt Parkway bridges. In these three videos from the department, learn why it needed to be done, how it was done, and see what it looked like before and after reconstruction.
The Shore (Belt) Parkway was built by Robert Moses in 1939. When it first opened 20,000 vehicles traveled it each day. Now, over 150,000 vehicles travel along the parkway. NYC DOT began reconstructing the Belt Parkway bridges in 2010 to meet federal safety standards. A look at before and after photos of the reconstructed bridges along the Belt Parkway.
