In 43 subsequent years of service, "Mr. Burns" rose to the position of Chief Operating Officer of the New York State Bridge Authority, in which capacity he served for more than 22 years.

In 41 years of service, "Switch" Curran became the manager of the Rip Van Winkle Bridge, A post he held for 16 years.
