LOL and I replied to that post too because you mentioned the Zilwaukee Bridge too. I live about 7 miles from the Zilwaukee Bridge.

Every time I read Zilwaukee, I spend a good 20 seconds thinking "I think they misspelled Milwaukee". I can't be the only one.

I drove across it a month ago and in the time between my southbound trip to a nearby beach and my northbound return, someone had managed to wedge their car over the sidewalk railing.

Sounds like they were drunk

Maybe but hate to judge without actually knowning anything.  Maybe the driver had a seizure or something.

Because that is exactly how Zilwaukee got it's name. They named it Zilwaukee with hopes it would confuse immigrants coming into New York thinking they are going to Milwaukee.

If it hasnít been mentioned before, itís the Cabrillo Bridge for San Diego, though the Coronado Bridge comes close second.

Grants Pass, OR itís the Caveman Bridge of course.

I'd go with this one because of the piers... They are square and not rounded.

Highway overpasses donít really scream ďiconicĒ at all, unless itís something like I-65 over IN 46 in Columbus, IN, and thatís the only notable bridge in the city.

Detroit: Ambassador Bridge


Fortunately soon to be overtaken in this category by the Gordie Howe Bridge.  The only thing iconic about the Ambassador Bridge is the complete civic assholes that were/are Matty Maroun and his Detroit International Bridge Company.

The Korean Veterans Memorial Bridge should also be considered, though itís usually overshadowed by the Seigenthaler.

For Columbia, SC, itís the Gervais St Bridge carrying US 1 over the Congaree River.

For Greenville, SC, itís the Liberty Bridge (pedestrian) over the Falls of the Reedy River.

I donít think Charlotte, NC really has an iconic bridge since itís the probably the largest city in the country not on a major river.  So maybe the I-77 south to I-485 outer fourth-level flyover?   :-D

Hartford: The Bulkeley Bridge, although I would nominate the Bushnell Arch if the Park River were not buried underground.  If you want to get out in the sticks, I'll include the Cornwall Covered Bridge.

New Haven: The Pearl Harbor Memorial ("Q") Bridge.

Great Connecticut choices! The Bulkeley carries I-84 over the Connecticut River. The Q-Bridge in New Haven carries I-95 over the Quinnipiac River. The West Cornwall bridge spans the Housatonic River and connects to US Route 7 on the Sharon (western) side.

Another notable bridge in the region would also be the Memorial Bridge over the Connecticut River between Springfield and West Springfield, MA.

Providence: The Claiborne Pell Newport Bridge
