Conceived in the 1860s, the Poughkeepsie-Highland Railroad Bridge created the only Hudson River crossing between New York City and Albany. Political and financial difficulties prevented the project from getting underway for several years. In 1886, the Manhattan Bridge Company was organized to fund the project and the Union Bridge Company was hired to construct it. The great iron and steel structure was completed in less than three years at a cost of over $3.5 million and was engineered to withstand gale force winds and the constant motion of the tidal river.
