ZSAdded by ZS

The Dukes Bay Bridge is a bridge over the Dukes Bay in north-eastern Liberty City in Grand Theft Auto IV and Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars that spans from north to south, connecting together the two boroughs of Dukes and Bohan.

Design Edit

The bridge is one of the more minor in the city but still remains popular among locals as it provides a valuable, fast and convenient means of transportation between the two boroughs, and additionally allows car users to avoid having to use the busier East Borough Bridge to travel between Dukes and Bohan. However, the bridge features toll barriers at the Dukes end, and a toll charge of $5 is required for travel. The East Borough Bridge and the Dukes Bay Bridge are the only two bridges in the Liberty City Metropolitan area that require a toll payment to use. Dukes Bay Bridge is subject to much traffic congestion due to its two-lane structure, there is only one lane for each direction of travel.

It is based on the Throggs Neck Bridge in New York City due to location, yet does not bear any resemblance to the real bridge.
