No, these were man made. That region of India is one of the wettest on the planet, so the local villagers came up with this technique to span the rivers that prevents the intense floods from washing an artificial bridge away. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Living_root_bridges

That’s the marine layer rolling in from the Ocean, and it seems to happen whenever it likes. Mostly morning and evenings, but not EVERY morning and evening.
It actually wasn’t totally demolished, the spiral part of it still exists in one of those little cities that’s made up of historic buildings and such. I can’t remember what it’s called but the guy that owns it has lots of cool buildings and
They’re branching out, so soon it will be the Manhattan Bridge and then the Brooklyn Bridge 😉
I was literally just there! Everyone is so nonchalant about them but the swing bridges are so cool. Easily one of my favorite things about tramping in NZ
Taken on the rare one day where the bridge isn’t backed up for 7 miles, of course.
Sounds like fun! The curviest I’ve driven is Hwy 1 from San Francisco, CA all the way through to Eureka, CA. I would highly recommend it! I know what you mean about the cheese wagon. But what an awesome bus ride to and from
Does anyone have insight into how this is constructed? Is the center section forged as a single piece?
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
