Library Exhibit – October 2017: 25th Anniversary – Jamestown -Verrazzano Bridge

25th Anniversary of the Jamestown-Verrazzano Bridge

On Saturday, October 17, 1992, about 40,000 people ran, walked, or strolled across the newly opened 7,350-foot-long Jamestown-Verrazzano Bridge. It was a beautiful autumn day. The West Passage gleamed in the sun. More fanfare celebrated the opening of the bridge for vehicular traffic the following Monday.

Remember the day and the eight years of planning and construction that led up to it with the Jamestown Historical Society exhibit in the Jamestown Philomenian Library foyer.
