Washington Bridge

Architect: C.C. Schneider

The Washington Bridge (not to be confused with the George Washington Bridge) connects Manhattan and the Bronx at 181st street. It is a steel-arch bridge with two 510-foot-long main spans and masonry approaches. The bridge opened to pedestrian traffic on December 1, 1888 and had a formal opening on February 22, 1889 (Washington's birthday), although full opening was delayed until December 1889.
