I recently walked over the Wawona Covered Bridge while hiking out in Yosemite. 

Shoot, I've been across that numerous times.  Didn't know you could count it.

I can add the Forth Road Bridge, Humber Bridge (part), and George Washington Bridge to the list of major bridges I have crossed on foot.

New Forth or old Forth (or Queensbury RR for that matter)?

Lived in London for nearly 7 years so I've walked across all of the major Thames River bridges west from Tower Bridge to Battersea.  Since that was many years ago, that doesn't include the pedestrian bridge the Death Eaters destroyed in Half-Blood Prince  :bigass: :bigass:

Last fall, I walked across Harvard Bridgetma from Cambridge to Boston. From there, we continued southward across the Mass Pike before circling back to hit the T.

I posted this in "Michigan Notes" on on the Midwest board a couple days ago, but will repeat here:

The 2020 Labor Day Mackinac Bridge Walk has been cancelled due to the pandemic.  It's partly about concerns with maintaining social distancing, and partly that bridge toll revenues are obviously in significant decline and the funding isn't available to cover the $300,000 in expenses.

A new one for me today: the 1958 Wishon Dam spillway bridge.  I also hiked across the 1938 Dinkey Creek Bridge again earlier in the day.  The latter is notable since it’s likely the only wooden truss bridge ever built in California.
