The Po river bridge along Italian A13 near Ferrara, with the much more impressive Aquitaine bridge in Bordeaux, France in a close second. I thought the latter was longer. Anyway nowhere as impressive as yours, the Po river bridge is only 1.13 miles long. I may have been on longer bridges, but I'm not sure.

The longest bridge I've driven across it's even more ridiculous: This one (Sign says 3,000 ft).

Seven Mile Bridge and Mackinac Bridge for me (as a passenger). Longest I've driven on is either Zilwaukee or the M-231 Grand River bridge

Although not as impressive as a lot of others on this thread, mine is the Astoria-Megler bridge although I hope to change that in the near future (not likely though).

In my case, it was the Confederation Bridge, between New Brunswick and Prince Edward Island, in Canada.  I crossed it with a tractor-trailer.

This bridge is the 34th longest in the world, according to the Wikipeddia list of the longest bridges in the world, at 12,900 meters (8,016 miles, or 42322,8 feet).

As a passenger: Chesapeake Bay Bridge/Tunnel,...
For me, it's both as a passenger and driver. With the exception of Lake Ponchatrain, all the other bridges on your list don't even come close.

Of those bridges, I passed on number 7 (Confederation Bridge), 20 (Champlain Bridge), 33 (Buckman Bridge) and 61 (Dames Point Bridge), all with a tractor-trailer, but I also passed number 20 with many kinds of vehicles, as this bridge is close from home.

Not sure what the definition of a bridge is in this context...

I-526 bridge over Cooper River, marshland, railroads, through 4 exits is 5.2 miles long...

Anyway, I have been 4 of the top 5; 10 of the top 15; 21 of the top 30; and 47 overall

Chesapeake Bay Bridge-Tunnel probably.

Was going to cross the Condederacy Bridge to PEI one time in 2012 had I gotten to Cape Jourmain a day earlier, but I was trying to get back to Bangor to have a full day before my flight back to NC.  Would have loved to get a couple of PEI Lighthouses to add to my collection.

When it comes to volume, the Ohio River is not a tributary. The Upper Mississippi is.

16- Mackinac Bridge (MI) I-75 on 8,038 km (4,995 miles).

This is the longest one for me.  But I was hitchhiking, not driving.

55- Walt Withman Bridge (PA-NJ) I-76 on 3,652 km (2,269 miles).
58- Delaware Memorial Bridge Westbound (NJ-DE) I-295 west/US-40 west on 3,291 km (2,045 miles).
59- Delaware Memorial Bridge Eastbound (DE-NJ) I-295 east/US-40 east on 3,281 km (2,039 miles).

This one's a bit notable for this reason:

At the Walt Whitman Bridge, the Delaware River is only about 1,650 feet wide.  At the Delaware Memorial Bridge, the river is 1.2 miles wide.  Yet, the Walt Whitman Bridge is nearly a quarter-mile longer due to going over significant pieces of land. 

The toll plaza for the Walt Whitman bridge is about 1 1/4 miles from the river, yet the bridge ends barely 1/10th of a mile from the toll plaza.

As a passenger, Chesapeake Bay Bridge and Tunnel and Sunshine Skyway Bridge.  As a driver, nothing impressive, probably an Ohio River Bridge in either Cincinnati or Louisville.
