Othmar H. Ammann was the engineer behind the George Washington Bridge, the Queensboro Bridge, the Verrazano-Narrows Bridge, Bronx-Whitestone Bridge, Throgs Neck, and the Triborough Bridge. The Bayonne Bridge is the only bridge within Ammann’s work (which included numerous bridges outside of New York City) that is not a suspension bridge. There is a bust dedicated to Ammann inside the George Washington Bridge bus station.
