Follow A Bridge
These days it seems almost everyone engages in social networking. Now, in addition to crossing it, you can follow a bridge on twitter (it might just follow you back) or you can friend it on facebook - The Patroon Island Bridge now has a presence on social media. The span joins a bevy of other local landmarks like The Albany Rural Cemetery and its comrade, The Troy-Menands Bridge, that have assumed "internet personalities". The Patroon Island Bridge carries I-90 over the Hudson River between Albany and Rensselaer Counties. New York DOT officials say construction on the span will begin later this spring and they’ll be sharing the most current information, traffic updates and construction pictures via facebook and twitter.
