U.S. #1012 commemorates the 100th anniversary of the founding of the American Society of Civil Engineers. The stamp shows the progress in civil engineering through bridges over the first 100 years. In the lower left is an 1852-era covered bridge. To the right is the George Washington Bridge in front of the New York City skyline.
 
The George Washington Bridge
Before the George Washington Bridge crossed the Hudson River, travelers relied upon barges.  The George Washington Bridge opened to traffic on October 25, 1932. Additional lanes were added to the upper level in 1946. The lower level was opened in 1962. One of the world’s busiest bridges, the George Washington Bridge is also the world’s only 14-lane suspension bridge. The bridge spans 3,500 feet.
