Interesting!  That one got me thinking about the catwalk under the New River Gorge Bridge, and if that would count as a "Bridge over a Bridge".  (Or maybe it is just kind of a "double decker bridge").  (It is interesting nevertheless).

Looks like a new thread:  Bridges under Bridges.

This reminds me of the time I took some friends on a camping trip so that they could see the New River Gorge Bridge up close and personal.  The original observation deck was still in use, and we were surprised to see a fellow free-scaling across the eastern arch structure.  We probably stayed for an hour watching.  It was fun trying to negotiate all of the hairpins on (then) WV-82 under the bridge in my 1985 Pontiac Catalina, which required three-point turns in several of the curves.

The US 1/301 Lee Bridge in Richmond also has a pedestrian bridge hanging underneath it from its north end to Belle Isle.
