Hudson River Bridge

blank dot

The Troy-Menands Bridge, officially known as the Menands Bridge, is a four-span through truss bridge that carries New York State Route 378 across the Hudson River in New York connecting Menands with Troy. The bridge was opened in 1933. The bridge carries Route 378 over the Hudson River between Albany and Rensselaer counties, connecting the village of Menands with the South Troy neighborhood. The bridge was designed and constructed in the early 20th century and originally fitted with a lift section to accommodate tall ships. The section's lifting device was removed in 1966, but the elevating towers remained until their removal in the summer of 2000. Today the bridge has a clearance over the water of 66 feet.
