“The busiest bridge in the world”
The George Washington Bridge is a double-decked suspension bridge spanning the Hudson River, connecting Manhattan in New York City to Fort Lee, Bergen County, New Jersey. I-95 and US 1/9 cross the river via the bridge. The New Jersey Turnpike (part of I-95) and US 46, which lie entirely within New Jersey, end halfway across the bridge at the state border. At its eastern terminus in New York City, the bridge connects with the Trans-Manhattan Expressway. The bridge, an integral conduit within the New York Metro area, has an upper level carrying four lanes in each direction and a lower level with three lanes in each direction, for a total of 14 lanes of travel. The speed limit on the bridge is 45 mph, though congestion often slows traffic, especially during the morning and evening rush hours. The bridge's upper level carries pedestrian and bicycle traffic. As of 2013, the George Washington Bridge carries approximately 102 million vehicles per year, making it the world's busiest motor vehicle bridge, according to the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, the bi-state government agency that owns and operates several area bridges, tunnels, and airports.
