 2005 Steel Bridge Competition
Steel bridge competition is an event that allows Civil Engineering students the opportunity to apply their knowledge about steel design and fabrication to be able to compete against other Engineering students from other Universities.
The design of the 2005 steel bridge is a simple truss for the decking support and the super structure which is strong and lightweight and allows the members to be assembled quickly.
The bridge incorporated the use of a super structure this year, which allows the deflection of the bridge at the center to be reduced.

The bridge was originally constructed at grade (1940) and later rebuilt (1969) as a double deck structure due to space constraints, in particular an adjacent cemetery.

 2006 Queens Business Book
When the government plans on demolishing the bridge that connects two of North America’s largest urban populations – Brooklyn and Queens – it’s not a matter to be taken lightly.
The aging bridge – a six-lane, 1.1- mile, tightly-packed overpass that joins the B and Q on the BQE – has been plagued with maintenance problems for years and badly needs to be replaced or repaired, according to transportation officials.
In the interim period, the agency is conducting a $12 million rehabilitation of the bridges, superstructure and deck.

 Up The Creek - A Boat Tour of the Newtown Creek, October 22, 2000
This bridge was built in 1838 and used to span the Bushwick Creek (now filled in), connecting fledgling Greenpoint to its neighbor to the south, the City of Williamsburg, and hence the City of Brooklyn beyond.
It was a short trip to the bridge, but we had to wait for a time for the bridge to be opened.
Then as the bridge opens, the structure of the bridge swings perpendicularly to its closed position to become parallel to the banks of Kill, forming a channel on either side for boats to pass.

 THADDEUS KOSCIUSZKO - A Polish Son of Liberty, Hero of the American Revolution   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-31)
Kosciusko, a romantic idealist from a country under Russian domination, was deeply influenced by the liberal principles of Thomas Jefferson on the inherent right of men to redress political injustice and, in freedom, to pursue personal fulfillment.
Kosciusko's exploration of the Carolina wilderness, location of defensible campsites and construction of a river fleet enabled General Greene to maneuver swiftly and effectively against Cornwallis, leading to the British commander's subsequent encirclement at Yorktown.
It was during Kosciusko's service in the South that we first hear of his reaction to the "peculiar" institution of slavery which, in its contradiction of the principles of the Revolution, must have puzzled the young idealist.

 MTR 37, Twinning the BQE's Kosciusko Bridge
NY Newsday reported this week that the NY State Dept. of Transportation is eyeing construction of a new $100 million bridge alongside the Brooklyn-Queens Kosciusko Bridge, where the Brooklyn-Queens Expressway (I-278) crosses Newtown Creek.
While the article focused primarily on the new bridge's role relieving congestion during reconstruction of that portion of the BQE, scheduled to start in 2000, the bridge would clearly remain long after the road work is done.
The New York Metropolitan Transportation Council Transportation Improvement Program lists the Kosciusko project as a rehabilitation, and says it is therefore exempt from air pollution considerations, but the new bridge would clearly represent a major addition of capacity on I-278.
