I know what bridge this is, but I’ll let someone else have a chance, since I just went.

Here's a clue: In a land of many lakes, one of the great ones is visible from this bridge.

This was, of course, a reference to Minnesota, with one of the "great" lakes being Lake Superior, visible here.

The bridge in the foreground (from which I took the photo) is a State Park road that connects to the Tettegouche State Park campground - no Street View to get the exact perspective, unfortunately.

I don't know how I missed that bridge considering I went from Duluth northward based on that lakes hint.

Here's my entry:

This showed up on Google Maps for Edison Township, NJ.  I lived near there for nearly 25 years and never seen a bridge like this in that particular community.

Nope. Nowhere near the east coast.

LOL, that was random. I don't think he really thought it was the correct answer.  :-D

I think I got it, but I'll give someone else the chance to go next.

It's been three days and I'm stocked up on bridge photos, so I might as well submit my guess:

Grant Marsh Bridge (I-94) in Bismarck, ND, looking southbound towards the Missouri River High Bridge.

Exactly. The clue, combined with your location, is how I got it.

I'll post a picture in a little while.

Darn, I was hoping it would be a little tougher! I'll have to be more creative with my canal clues in the future, or not give a clue at all.

Took this picture myself in 2005. (This is one piece of a larger picture; if I used the whole picture, it would be too easy.)

Correct. If anyone is interested, I’ll upload the full photo tomorrow. We were up on Mount Roberts looking down at Juneau when I took the picture.

Yes, a reference to the Erie Canal song. I figured the whole phrase "low bridge, everybody down" would have been too easy, but it didn't matter, as it turned out.
