Over 108 million vehicles travel over the George Washington Bridge each year, making it the busiest bridge in the City, the nation and even the world.

In its first full year of operation, 5,509,900 vehicles crossed the bridge. Today, approximately 108 million vehicles use the bridge annually, making it the world's busiest bridge.

Opening 86 years ago today, the well-engineered bridge enjoys another birthday, perpetually transporting vehicles, bikes and pedestrians between New York City and New Jersey.
