I believe Clifford took this picture; the man in the pic is Leonard Coatsworth, the last person to drive over the bridge. >Safely back at the toll plaza, I saw the bridge in its final collapse and saw my car plunge into the Narrows.
Hoping it wasn’t to keep Oakland down and it is because that is where the channel is deeper.
>The bridge was the idea of a local official in the Chinese Communist Party who was subsequently dismissed for corruption. — >A year after opening, the bridge had few users and was described as China’s “bridge to nowhere”. Built for a projected 30,000 vehicles
Love this bridge… I work near there and walk this bridge several times a week
It is… I didn’t get to hike up, but I did bike around and check out Rio Celeste and a few other spots nearby
>In railroad use, guard rails are placed parallel to regular running rail along areas of restrictive clearance, such as a bridge, trestle, or tunnel. These have the effect of keeping the wheels of rolling stock in alignment in case of derailment. It also helps
Finally a bridge I recognize! Been hoping for some of Jacksonville’s bridges since I (recently) found this sub. Awesome picture!
That stat must be just for that river. The Brooklyn Bridge was earlier and has a 135′ clearance. It is just one example.
Lovely bridge, but have they gone and chained off the poster board from the main gravel path, down at the front support? Probably those damn contractors. 😉
Western New York State. This picture (I believe) was taken at the local Community College.
Yes, people complained when I put a ca., date, and said I should put the range, and of course that causes confusion too. Should have stuck with the ca., 1993.

High winds are a problem with trucks. As long as you are not in the summer going with beach traffic, this route can be quicker than going from DC area (depending on where you start) to the Delaware Memorial Bridge or vice versa or
The catwalks for the cables are usually carried by barge between the towers, but the gorge seems to deep for that to be practical.
Nope, just a single exposure, you can see the structure better here View post on imgur.com
Coming in from the other direction, anything past the town site is prohibited and has this No Trespassing sign for the Water Supply Area: View post on imgur.com The hike itself is Walk In Only- No Camping or Bicycles: View post on imgur.com
The Port Mann Bridge is a 10-lane cable-stayed bridge that opened to traffic in 2012. It is currently the second longest cable-stayed bridge in North America and was the widest bridge in the world until the opening of the new Bay Bridge in California
No, this is the bridge that the movie was about. Nearby, there is a museum that shows how the prisoners were treated, and there is a cemetery for allied POWs. And, a memorial set up by the Japanese. The bridge was built in Thailand,

Twin falls [1136 x 640] still traveling, so only cell quality My other favorite is the valley below. It’s a whole community situated in the valley with a little bridge crossing. I think there’s a country club down there. Valley [1136 x 640]
I had no idea they had sightseeing tours on the river that long ago. Cool.
