One of the important pioneering features of the Long Island Motor Parkway was the first construction of bridges associated with an automobile road to eliminate grade crossings. A total of at least 65 bridges were built for the Motor Parkway from 1908 to 1926 over crossroads (designated a parkway bridge), under crossroads (designated a highway bridge), and, as part of right-of-way agreements, to connect farmlands (designated a farmway bridge).
Continuing the west to east documentation, the 20th bridge in this series on VanderbiltCupRaces.com focuses on the Old Searingtown Road Motor Parkway Bridge in Searingtown. The post includes rare Motor Parkway surveys, maps, aerials and photos.
