Explored

 

some info about it :

 

The Queensboro Bridge is a double cantilever bridge, as it has two cantilever spans, one over the channel on each side of Roosevelt Island. The bridge does not have suspended spans, so the cantilever arm from each side reaches to the mid-point of the span.[2] The lengths of its five spans and approaches are as follows:

 

*

o Manhattan to Roosevelt Island span length (cantilever): 1,182 ft (360 m)

o Roosevelt Island span length: 630 ft (192 m)

o Roosevelt Island to Queens span length (cantilever): 984 ft (300 m)

o Side span lengths: 469 and 459 ft (143 and 140 m)

o Total length between anchorages: 3724 ft (1135 m)

o Total length including approaches: 7449 ft (2270 m)
