Reflected South Grand Island Bridge at Sunset, connecting Tonawanda, NY and Grand Island, NY over the Niagara River.

Reflected South Grand Island Bridge at Sunset

South Grand Island Bridge at Dusk, looking north from Tonawanda, NY along I-190 towards Grand Island.

Despite the success in the downtown Buffalo sections of the I-190, the bridge remains a toll bridge. It 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.
