This page highlights The Wheeler Farmway Bridge that recently was featured in Sam Berliner's Motor Parkway website in the spring of 2008. Thanks to Sam, Ed Murray, and fellow Motor Parkway Panelists Al Velocci and Bob Miller for their descriptions, history, and pictures of this bridge. However, being the explorer that I am, I couldn't let a mild December day go by without following their lead and finding this treasure of Motor Parkway history myself. The Bridge actually connected the north and south sides of a farm that the Motor Parkway bisected in its travels through this section of Queens. The previous page on my website depicted the Motor Parkway route east of the bridge towards Winchester Avenue and future pages will contain pictures of its route west of the bridge towards Springfield Blvd.
Per Sam's website, the bridge is located between the "stub ends of 226th Street
and between Springfield Boulevard and Cloverdale Boulevard" (and the
Grand Central/Cross Island Parkway complex to the east).
