You can use a pedestrian bridge to walk across a street, highway, or body of water.
The City Agency that maintains what the bridge crosses is usually responsible for the bridge itself.
- The Department of Parks and Recreation (DPR) manages all of the bridges leading to a park or within a park.
- Amtrak, NJ Transit, and the Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA) all manage pedestrian bridges over their train tracks. You can report a problem with this type of pedestrian bridge by contacting the Agency in charge of the train track.
- The Department of Transportation (DOT) maintains most of the pedestrian bridges that cross a street, highway, or water within New York City.
