Mitchell Road Bridge in Pittsford, New York?

Ha, that was fast. Yes that is correct. Did you pick up on my clue?

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

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.

Can you explain the clue for the uninformed?

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.)

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.


https://www.google.com/maps/place/New+Brunswick,+NJ/@40.4903646,-74.4239836,3a,75y,90t/data=!3m8!1e2!3m6!1sAF1QipPgW0yonw3dQQXcXfsUaOI6Ol0Iwikyn8Nkml55!2e10!3e12!6shttps:%2F%2Flh5.googleusercontent.com%2Fp%2FAF1QipPgW0yonw3dQQXcXfsUaOI6Ol0Iwikyn8Nkml55%3Dw203-h152-k-no!7i4032!8i3024!4m5!3m4!1s0x89c3c355f06a92a5:0x25925506798e230c!8m2!3d40.4862157!4d-74.4518188#

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.

Yeah it was as I would know, as it’s strange to me.

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.

You being from Rochester is why I made the connection to that song—doubt I’d have thought of it otherwise—and then I started looking at Street View images of some of the bridges.

Correct, Mapmikey had the most recent correct answer and is thus up next if he wants to take his turn.

Well, it's been close to a week, so I'm going to take the liberty of posting the next bridge to guess:

Here's a clue: Google seems to think this bridge is in a particular location. It isn't. It's not even in the same state, in fact, but it is within 300 miles.

Did you figure out where Google thinks it is, at least?

I'm considering some options for additional clues, but would first like to know how helpful the first one was. (My guess: not very)

Here's another clue: This bridge crosses a river with a name due opposite of its location relative to mine.

And another anecdotal clue: It is visible from Street View. When I first verified this, the image(s) I found showed the sign with the bridge name visible in plain sight. I got really nervous that I had done the same thing, and quickly rushed back here to double-check - only to realize, of course, that I had enough sense to post a picture of the opposite opening. Whew!

Correct! You were actually up next before, so you can post the next bridge if you'd like.

I cheated and just searched Google for the image URL, then went to his website from there.

This is why I didn't want to post any (like trying to solve though) because all my bridge photos are likely on my website.  I at least changed the name of the photo so that looking at my post quote wouldn't give away a lot more info.

So now we've got three people that know the answer, but none of them are saying it for various reasons:

-One doesn't have another photo to post
-One posted the previous photo and wants to give others a chance
-One cheated


Who can jump in and help us out here?  :-D

What bridge is this?

You might be new to this game, but you're supposed to guess the previous bridge in order to be able to post the next one to guess.

Yes I'm new to this game.

See below:

Guess That Bridge is as simple as it sounds, Guess the bridge! Almost any bridges are allowed, but:

... Here are some guidelines:

...
—The first person who gets their guess correct (as confirmed by the poster) gets to post a new picture to guess. If they do not post a picture within 24 hours, someone else can post one.
—If no one guesses it within a week, the guessing has stalled. That’s OK, after a wile, someone can post a new picture to guess.
