The Brooklyn Bridge and Terrace Bridge in Prospect Park were named as "structurally deficent" in a recent report by New York City's Department of Transportation.
There's the Brooklyn Bridge and then there's the Terrace Bridge. One is an iconic landmark and one is a small pedestrian footbridge in Prospect Park. But both are in Brooklyn and both are high on the city's list of bridges in need of help.
New statistics released by the City's Department of Transportation show the city's traffic fatality rate remains among the lowest in the nation, and among the lowest the city has ever seen.
Transportation Commissioner Janette Sadik-Khan attributed the low traffic fatality rates to the city's efforts to provide pedestrian plazas, bike lanes, and public safety campaigns throughout the city.
