The Collar City Bridge (also known as the Hoosick Street Bridge) carries NYS Route 7 across the Hudson River connecting Colonie, New York with Troy, by way of passing over Green Island. The northern terminus of Interstate 787 is nearby. The bridge was built in 1981 and has a length of 1.5 miles. The bridge's official name, a reference to the City of Troy's nickname and its history of producing detachable collars for shirts. In the early 20th century, 15,000 people worked in the collar industry in Troy. Ninety out of every 100 collars worn in America were made in Troy, and Troy became world famous as the "Collar City."
