South Grand Island Bridge behind Trees

South Grand Island Bridge behind Trees

South Grand Island Bridge, a structure that attracts me often. The bridge itself is a wonderful piece of architecture. Add the mighty Niagara River it spans and the reasons to visit and photograph it grow. In this photograph, I allowed the bridge to recede into the background for a different take on a familiar subject.

The South Grand Island Bridge takes the I-190 from Tonawanda, New York (NY) to Grand Island, New York (NY) over the Niagara River. Despite some efforts and successes in the downtown Buffalo sections of the I-190, the bridge remains a toll bridge. The bridge consists of two truss arch bridges. It is operated by the New York State Thruway Authority. The bridge has a 93-foot clearance. While the twin bridges were targeted to be identical there are some differences between the one built in 1930s and the other from 1960s, like stone vs. steel faced cutwaters, different guard rails, and more.
