When New York City was consolidated in 1898, all the waterway bridges were placed under the jurisdiction of the Department of Bridges. In just over a decade, the Department designed, constructed, and opened 19 bridges throughout the City. Currently, the Division of Bridges, within New York City’s Department of Transportation (DOT), is responsible for the operation, maintenance and improvement of 790 elevated bridge structures, 67 culverts and 6 tunnels.
