WHITESTONE BRIDGE Type Suspension Main span length 2,300 feet Opened April 29, 1939 Rating Structurally deficient, meaning the deck, substructure or superstructure has a poor rating or that the bridge has a low load-carrying capacity. After looking at federal ratings of some local bridges the Queensboro Bridge, Brooklyn Bridge and Manhattan Bridge will undergo extra inspections. Other city deck truss bridges similar to the one that collapsed in Minnesota to be inspected are the Marine Parkway Bridge; 145th Street Bridge; West 207th Street Bridge and bridges on the Brooklyn-Queens and Major Deegan expressways.(Credit: Newsday / Kathy Kmonicek)
