Awesome bridge to drive over. Rode my motorcycle over it last summer.
Top 1000 Bridge Pictures
I thought this was some falsework used during the construction of a functional bridge, but it’s just an art project. [More pictures here](http://www.dezeen.com/2012/11/15/pont-de-singe-balloon-bridge-by-olivier-grossetete/). > Though visitors weren’t allowed to use the bridge, it would theoretically be strong enough to hold the weight of a
I love this picture, really great photo! I’ll have to share this with my Illinois bridge engineering buddies (if that’s okay of course). Thanks!
Blows my mind they were able to build this, those are some enormous logs.
Correction: The town is spelled: “Kromlau” actually ;p ). It’s also called “The Hobbit’s Bridge” or “Teufelsbrücke” (Devil’s Bridge) by locals. It was built 1860 during a 10 year construction time span. It is part of a larger park area built in German Romantic
It is the counterweight that continuously balances the span when lifting up.
The green pillars are actually designed to keep ships from colliding with the bridge. This bridge is at the mouth of Tampa Bay. Ships have to go through here to reach Tampa and St Petersburg. The original bridge approach is used as a fishing
That would be State Route 95. US 95 goes through Arizona, California, and Nevada.
Reminds me of when I stood in that very spot before the airshow during the summer. Great memories of Seattle.
The Bear Mountain Bridge up in Peekskill has Anthony’s Nose (mountain) as the east anchorage.

Eisenbahn = railway (literally “steel road”), so I doubt there’s actually a place in Germany with that name. [According to the Wikipedia source](http://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Itztalbrücke_\(Eisenbahn\)), this bridge is somewhere between the villages Rödental and Dörfles-Esbach. The name of the bridge, Itztalbrücke, literally means “Itz valley bridge”,

The Appalachian Trail crosses the Hudson through this bridge and then passes through the top of Bear Mountain, which casts its shadow on Anthony’s Nose (seen on the left part of the picture).

Absolutely, but I think the bridge has become such a fixture that people don’t want to talk about replacing it. Also, some high-value real estate developments have sprung up to th north of the bridge that would be impacted by the construction required. Replacement
If you pull over into Pulga, CA you can see the bridges clearly. I was able to get this picture from the passenger side without stopping on the freeway. Here is the wikimapia http://tools.wmflabs.org/geohack/geohack.php?pagename=Pulga_Bridges¶ms=39.7946_N_-121.4519_E_type:landmark_region:US
I didn’t even see that, I only saw the “no one cares about you” EDIT: [There you go](http://topwalls.net/wallpapers/2012/02/goldengatebridgesanfransisco-1800×2880.jpg)
River Forth, near Edinburgh, Scotland. More famous for the railway bridge behind where I took the picture. See http://imgur.com/0bDtdQJ
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.
