My favorite is also suspension.


Old concrete arch bridges FTW.
Wait, it's all Ohio? Always has been.


My favorite types of bridges would definitely have to be suspension and cantilever. Not too much of a cable-stayed fan, but I do love the Zakim Bridge in Boston.

Suspension, I think in part because I always liked the way the ones in New York would have the cables lit up at night.

Cable-stayed doesn't do much for me, although the Sunshine Skyway is very impressive, especially from a distance, and I like the way the Bill Buckner Bridge in Boston was designed so the cars roll through the towers' legs.

first time I'd ever heard it called that!  :-D

I am partial towards suspension.

I like old bridges. Doesn't matter which type, so long as they're old. And preferably still drivable.  :biggrin:
