Summary
In 1906, New York and New Jersey governors created an Interstate Bridge Commission to develop plans for a bridge across the Hudson River. In 1925, architect Othmar Ammann and New Jersey's governor George Silzer received approval from the Port Authority to build a bridge from 179th Street in Manhattan to Fort Lee, New Jersey. Construction began in 1927, using an all-professional crew, and was completed in 1931
