Nice one. It looks strikingly similar to one earlier in the thread. I know what bridge it is, but I’ve guessed several of them correctly in the past week or so and I think I should give someone else a turn.

Would this happen to be the Roosevelt Lake bridge in Arizona?

It looks to me quite similar to US 10 over the Mississippi in Hastings, MN, which I posted a while back... not sure if that's the same one you're thinking of.

MCRoads, yes you are correct!  Your turn to post.  jlam, gotta be a little bit quicker :)

I also thought I saw a bridge like this in this thread. For this reason, I searched the thread for the bridge a couple of times before posting.

It reminded me of this one:

I don't have one in mind right now so I'll go with the bridge I attempted to post back on page 10.

Hint: I have the power!


Here was the answer:

Glad to see this thread revived. The answer to my previous submission, which is where the thread died out, is the Harvest River Bridge on the Neponset Greenway Trail in Mattapan, Massachusetts (a suburb of Boston).

As for the current picture, I feel like that's the Shelby Rhinehart Memorial Bridge, but I can't say for sure.

Great guess! You are correct.

Ok!

This one might be kind of tricky, but hopefully you guys will be able to narrow it down given this hint:

This bridge helps link a small town to Manhattan.

Something makes me suspect "Manhattan" refers to the ghost town of that name in Colorado.

It’s been about 2 days, so I’ll tell you it isn’t in colorado. But you aren’t far off (state-wise, anyway).

Well, I think you guys are taking the Manhattan part of the hint a bit too seriously.

Hint #2:

The two places the bridge linked didn’t exist for several years, even while people were still living and working there.

In that case, it appears to be the Los Alamos Canyon Bridge.  https://bridgehunter.com/nm/los-alamos/7622/

That is correct! I realized that first hint was a bit ambiguous, but the second hint might’ve made it a bit too easy. Good job either way.

The Jökulsárlón Glacier Lagoon suspension bridge in Iceland. I travelled over this bridge in 2018.

My timing is off!  I instantly recognized the bridge as well, having crossed it in 2017 (as well as taking a boat cruise in the lagoon and walking those beaches).

That'll teach me to spend time away from AARoads!    :-D

Got it, of course.  ozarkman417 is up.

The lagoon and Diamond Beach across the street are spectacular.

I think it's the China–Laos Railway crossing the Yuanjiang River. Don't know whether the bridge has a more formal name.

I'm not sure if it has a more formal name, either. Regardless, you are correct.

Exactly. I knew it was too easy, especially given when I said it was taken (given that my prior entry was from a southbound Acela last Tuesday—this was from a northbound Acela the day before). You’re up next.
