Here it is: https://goo.gl/maps/GW3dYTLV4hmGrfuP8

I don't know what it is called, however, it exists. And i thought the Oakland Bay Bridge was cool for having 2 main spans.

Anyway, just thought it was neat.

That would be the Kurushima-Kaikyō Bridge, the world's longest suspension bridge at just over 4,000 meters in length.

I believe it's considered the longest "suspension bridge structure." Usually references to the "longest suspension bridge" refer to the longest single central span, which is the Akaski-Kaikyo Bridge in Japan.
