Someone else can go ahead and post a picture. Interchange ramps & bridges typically aren't that interesting aside from the occasional engravings on the pillars, etc. South Dakota outdid themselves here.

Hint #1:  If I had dropped the Google Pegman on the other side of the bridge, and spun the view around to the opposite direction, then it would have been very obvious to everybody—and I mean everybody—where to start looking.

Didn't need the hint this time, just had to remember where I saw the bridge. It's the St. Charles Air Line Bridge in Chicago. Just a few blocks away from an old buddy's house.

The Fremont Bridge in Portland, Oregon?

Yep that's it!

https://maps.app.goo.gl/kx3yLjGMWnkJwrSN6

Total bizarre fluke that I got that. I've never been to Oregon, but I will be heading to Portland for business next month and I was looking at their transit authority's website for information about getting from the airport to the hotel. In the course of doing so, I saw a bridge that looked rather familiar from this thread and then decided to look at a map to figure out which one it was. Scroll down to the bottom right where it says "Biking": https://www.travelportland.com/plan/max-light-rail/



Anyway, I don't have any bridge pictures queued up and ready to play, so if someone else wants to take my turn, please go ahead.

I am quite amused to find this in my hotel room in downtown Portland:
