The Patroon Island Bridge is the Hudson River crossing for Interstate 90. Adjacent to the Interstate 787 Interchange on Interstate 90, the Patroon Island provides access to Rensselaer County and Boston bound traffic.

The Patroon Island Bridge is certainly a bridge of superior truss deck design. Traffic using the bridge are oblivious to its design, giving it a more plain look than what it really is.
