Celebrating the 75th Anniversary of the Robert F. Kennedy Bridge
RFK Bridge The Robert F. Kennedy Bridge celebrated its 75th Anniversary on July 11, 2011. Commonly thought as just of a suspension bridge across the East River, the 3.5-mile long complex also includes a vertical lift across the Harlem River, a truss bridge across the Bronx Kill, a viaduct across Randall's and Wards Islands and a three-legged roadway interchange and toll plaza complex.

To commemorate the bridge's anniversary, MTA Bridges and Tunnels and the Greater Astoria Historical Society have created a special photography exhibit featuring images rarely seen by the public titled: "A Planner's Dream, an Engineer's Triumph, a Legacy to our City." It will be on display at the Historical Society's Quinn Gallery located at 35-20 Broadway in Long Island City from through October.

The Triborough Bridge Project was designated as a National Historic Civil Engineering Landmark by ASCE in 1986.
