Department of Transportation to replace Unionport Bridge in the Bronx

Renderings show the new bridge will be upgraded

Renderings show the new bridge will be upgraded to six lanes instead of four.

The city has announced plans to replace a heavily traveled drawbridge in the borough.

The Unionport Bridge connects the Cross Bronx Expressway, the Hutchinson River Parkway and the Bruckner Expressway, and sees an estimated 45,000 vehicles crossing it every day. The Department of Transportation says that number will likely increase as more customers flock to the new Throgs Neck shopping center.
