The Guess That Bridge thread!
« on: July 20, 2020, 06:17:29 PM »

Not sure if this is the place for this, but I thought I would start a little game. Guess That Bridge is as simple as it sounds, Guess the bridge! Almost any bridges are allowed, but:

—No immediately recognizable bridge pics. The point of this game is to have to think a bit.
—No unrecognizable bridge pics. It has to have a somewhat distinct feature, so that overpass by your house probably won’t work here.
—photo editing is encouraged, but follow the rules above. If you couldn’t recognize the picture after 6 months of not seeing it, it’s probably not going to be guessed.

The bridges DO NOT need to be road bridges! Do you know a cool train bridge? Put it! Is there a bridge that carries a set of rails to roll barracks of bourbon across the road? Post it here! Someone may know it!

With the image guidelines in place, we can move onto guessing. Here are some guidelines:

—Guess the name and/or location of the bridge. Both local and formal names are accepted. Examples of guesses might be: the War Mother’s Memorial Bridge; OR the Capitol St Bridge; OR the bridge that leads to the capitol in Frankfort, KY. Just make the bridge in question obvious.
—To make a guess, quote the original post, without the picture.
—The first person who gets their guess correct (as confirmed by the poster) gets to post a new picture to guess. If they do not post a picture within 24 hours, someone else can post one.
—If no one guesses it within a week, the guessing has stalled. That’s OK, after a wile, someone can post a new picture to guess.

All that being said, please keep it on topic, good luck, and let’s begin!

First bridge to guess:

No, it’s a bit north of there. Though, it is on a river named after a state, so...

Been on the BUS 72 bridge tho, so that was a nice surprise.

Close, it’s a bit to the west. It does look similar though. This bridge has 5 Pennsylvania truss spans, not just 3. If you have been on the Bourbon Trail, you will have probably seen it.

First bridge to guess:

Ohio River @ Metropolis, IL

My best guess is that it was taken from the parking lot at Harrah's.

Wow, that street view is dead on! I rock the pic a bit higher up, but it’s still really close.

Should the correct guesser not post a picture of a new bridge, what should be the policy be on that? My suggestion: if the correct guesser does not submit a new bridge within 24 hours of confirmation of the poster, anyone may post a new one.

Sounds good, I’ll amend the rules. Hopefully it doesn’t happen often.

It has been more than 24 hours. I just drove across this bridge, and it is one of the more scary bridges I've been on.

Correct. That one is quite unique, in my opinion. Now, please post a new bridge.
M3100 was close in that it still crosses the White River.

Well, the only post-worthy bridge photo I have of my own would have been the same one I just guessed correctly, so...  looks like I'll have to 'borrow' one from the interwebs...

It's probably not right, but is this a bull shoals lake bridge of some sort, i am getting MO ozarks vibes from it. BUt the two i know of (160 and MO76) are 10 and were 6 spans each respectively.

It reminds me of a bridge that used to be by I-44 south of OKC. But this one has too many spans.

Can't ID the road much less the bridge (haven't been that far north), but I'm guessing this is a bridge over the Yukon River and therefore is somewhere in the Yukon Territory.
