Construction underway on Garden Bridge in Brooklyn

Construction is underway on a $100 million bridge spanning the Gowanus Canal between the Brooklyn boroughs of Brooklyn and Staten Island.

New York Gov.

Andrew Cuomo announced the bridge project during a ribbon cutting ceremony Monday.

The bridge will be part of a $1.2 billion project to extend the Manhattan-Queens Expressway to a bridge over the Gowanas Canal, which runs through the Brooklyn Borough of Queens.

Construction is expected to take five years.

It’s expected to open in 2019.

Construction on the bridge has been delayed in the past due to environmental concerns.
