Most Recent proposals call for a undersea rail tunnel instead of a bridge.

I really like the design of this bridge. I hope someone, somewhere builds something with such a pleasing design, although I expect to be atleast 5 lanes in each direction with atleast two high speed rail lines.

Never built bridge across the Hudson River in NYC.



A later design added apartments in the towers.
