Cross Bronx Expressway Truck Accident Lawyers

Although the Cross Bronx Expressway has become an indispensable part of the New York area transportation system and an essential link in the East Coast Interstate highway network, building this 8.3 mile six-lane corridor that runs through the heart of the South Bronx was extremely challenging.

First of all, the high land value area was already heavily built-up and constructing the expressway required blasting through ridges, crossing valleys and redirecting rivers. However, while building, the goal was to cause minimal disruption to the apartment buildings that topped the ridges in the area of Grand Concourse.

More importantly, the expressway had to cross 113 streets, seven other pre-existing highways and parkways (either completed or also under construction), one subway line, five elevated lines, three commuter rail lines as well as hundreds of utility, water and sewer lines. None of these lifelines could be disrupted during construction of the Cross Bronx Expressway.

Today though, this highway provides the only adequate means of east-west travel through the middle Bronx for most trucks and other vehicles. It connects not only New Jersey via the George Washington Bridge but it also meets up with New England via Westchester County highways, and affords very essential relief for local cross-Bronx traffic. Because this is such a vital part of highway traffic patterns the concentration of trucks has only increased and so have Cross Bronx Expressway trucking accidents that Smiley & Smiley, LLP, continue to take on for injured clients.
