It is the Thomas A. Mathis bridge near seaside, NJ. After a reverse image search brought me to a photographer from seaside’s Instagram, I just needed to scroll down to find the picture.

As a side note, why is there a signal head facing the wrong way for the draw span? I can only assume that maybe it is for contraflow for hurricanes, but why would the draw span need to open in that event?

I was thinking it might've been that bridge earlier but the railings didn't match. Now that you posted this I went back on GSV to take another look. The columns under the bridge is a perfect match!

The original railings were in use until the 2010s when the entire deck was redone. Afaik only the piers and draw spamln are original now

Alright! Someone else can go, as the picture I want to post is... well, it exists in one of the film cans I have yet to develop. Hopefully I can develop it soon, but right now the room I develop in is a mess.

Don't know what it's called, but is it the long I-10 bridge between I-55 and I-310 in Louisiana?
Oops, didn't read all of the above post.  :-D

Whether a team makes the playoffs isn't comparable to whether they are above .500. Part of making the playoffs is getting the wins when you need them to get in, which Brady/Belichick always found a way to do. That's skill. Being above .500 or below .500 is just however things shake out. That's luck.

I had to scour the internet for this one, figuring that my techniques for finding it will probably lead someone to go "oh it will be a New Jersey/Pennslyvania bridge" I am going to post a bridge that could be from my local area, or could be from somewhere else.

Yes. It's a bridge, and it is over a creek, and it is modern. Also, the original bridge was green.

Another clue, an actual clue.

The original bridge was from the 1930s. It is owned by a county. And it is on bridgehunter. This was chosen because they wanted it to be part of the historic feel of the town it is in.

Since nothing has been posted in a while I think I'll give it a shot.

I had posted one.  Was it not viewable?  Did I stump you all?

I was trying to think of clues that wouldn't be too revealing.  It's in Europe.  It's on an E-road.

I don't see it for some reason

EDIT: Actually I see where I'm confused at. You posted your example in the same response where you posted the answer to SteveG1988's bridge. Sorry about that. Strike my bridge for now.

Agreed. This has been fun and I'd like to keep it going, but I'm stumped.

Sorry for never confirming this, but the guess for my bridge (the cable-stayed bridge) was correct.

Sorry for taking so long.  The bridge is in Germany.

I noticed this thread has been inactive for about a week and a half, so I’m going to go ahead and give you guys a new bridge to guess.



Good luck!
