ANSWER: The George Washington Bridge.

The "GWB" is a suspension bridge spanning the Hudson River, connecting New York City to New Jersey.

As of 2007, the George Washington Bridge has the greatest vehicular capacity of any bridge in the world. Carrying approximately 106 million vehicles per year, the GWB is the world's busiest motor vehicle bridge, according to the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey – the bi-state government agency that owns and operates several area bridges, tunnels, and airports.
