It’s not a interstate or turnpike (toll road).

US 30 over the Fox River in Illinois. That one has a trail bridge underneath that I thought was cool.

It was my turn to go, but since the prior one has been guessed, no harm done.

I'm curious what makes it famous.  If it is indeed an I-95 overpass in NC, I've driven under it dozens of times without being aware of it having any significance.  What should I know about it for my next I-95 drive?

You are correct!

Was one of the first to be built for I95 in NC. Exit 70 to 79 was built in 1954 and completed in 1956, way before the Interstate program was passed.

It's been over 24 hours since I posted, so I'll offer a clue. I was standing near a permanently-moored naval cruiser when I took the picture.

The bridge crosses the northernmost arm of the river's delta.

I've never done these before but I was compelled to find it.

It's the Sampsoniyevskiy Bridge in St. Petersburg, Russia

You are correct! I took the picture from the west bank near the Cruiser Aurora (roughly where the word "Aurora" appears on the map).

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.
