Funny thing is I knew it was over either a canal or a navigable river (and it's obviously a pedestrian crossing or trail), and because of the BGSs on the right I figured it was somewhere in the USA.  Eventually I started checking out the Mohawk Valley and came across this. And I went through all of that to get to something that's right in your backyard lol

I don't know the name but that is the US 1 bridge near Fort Knox in Maine.

I don't think so.  The picture shows a multi-lane highway, and the concrete pier has the cables attached in a single column.  The Penobscot Narrows bridge is a two-lane road, and the concrete piers have the cables attached in parallel columns.

This one is stumping me, and I'm not happy about it.   :angry:

The Penobscot Narrows Bridge also has an observatory up at the top of one of the towers and you can see the windows when you look closely at pictures of said bridge. This bridge doesn't have those.

I know what bridge it is, but I'm not going to say unless the thread stalls for a long time.

This bridge also looks somewhat similar to another Highway 1 bridge - TCH/BC1 over the Fraser River in Surrey, BC. And there's yet another similar bridge on I-280 near Toledo, but that's not it either.

I did find it, but I'm not going to share it either because I cheated.

Is it the Puente Centenario (Centennial Bridge) in Panama City, Panama?  It carries the Pan-American Highway over the Panama Canal.

 Dang it, it's been so long since I've been to that bridge that I didn't remember what the road underneath looked like. I just looked at those unique support structures and said "yep, that's it".

I don't think you even need to wait for confirmation.  Here is the Google Maps shot.

Here is the next bridge to guess.  Images are from GSV with spoiler parts of the image blotted out.  Both pictures are of the same bridge.

I find this bridge’s design to be quite interesting.





Good Luck!

Good Luck!

I-90 Business Loop crossing the Missouri River at Chamberlain, SD.  Traveled across this bridge a long time ago on a family vacation.  If memory serves, it was still US-16 then since there were big chunks of I-90 across SD that weren't completed yet.

Here's my candidate.  Sorry for the bad pic, but maybe that will make it bit more of a challenge.  My photo, from September 2018.

catch22, you are correct!  I thought this bridge was interesting not only because of the "double barreled" design, but that when it was built, it was cobbled together from two existing bridges - hence the two different sized pieces.

Your turn!  (which I see you've already posted)

I had no idea this was made from two different bridges, that is interesting indeed.

For anyone curious, here's the Wikipedia article about the bridge:

Here's my candidate.  Sorry for the bad pic, but maybe that will make it bit more of a challenge.  My photo, from September 2018.



catch22, looks like you have us stumped for about a month!  Any chance you might hand out a clue to help us out?

I'm getting a "pedestrian bridge" vibe from the picture rather than a "motor vehicle bridge" ...  Is that accurate, or just a bad guess on my part?

The bridge carries an active state highway.  I took the picture from the old bridge (now a pedestrian bridge) that this one replaced.  Looking the opposite direction from the camera POV would reveal this:

One more hint:  It's in Michigan.

Bingo!

For anyone interested, here are the Wikipedia articles about this bridge (with a much better picture than mine), and the bridge it replaced.

It kind of looks like the Brookport Bridge which carries US 45 across the Ohio River between Paducah KY and Brookport IL.  Is it?
