Black & White Symmetry, South Grand Island Bridge, Buffalo, NY

Black & White Symmetry

Back at one of my favorite locations trying to find out a new angle and a new way to present this beautiful combination of wonderful bridge twins and the mighty Niagara River below. This time going for a black and white presentation with a strong reflection and a perspective stressing the length of the bridge.

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.
