Best bridges in the United States

Bridges seem to captivate people more than any other structures, not only as engineering marvels that connect previously separated areas but also as local icons that become unmistakable parts of a city. They’re places to relax, places to hone your photography skills, and sometimes places to beat your head against the steering wheel when stuck in traffic. But they always bring a sense of wonder and a little bit of closeness to the water. So it’s no wonder that bridges are among the most photog...

World's longest sea bridge open

Accessing Macau and Hong Kong from mainland China just got a lot easier, thanks to the opening of this new bridge.

Which bridge in your state is the most dangerous?

America's infrastructure is close to hitting rock bottom. In fact, infrastructure as a whole in the US received an embarrassing D+ on the American Society of Civil Engineers latest Infrastructure Report Card. And when talking specifically about bridges, the grade was a C+. Way to go, Congress. According to Business Insider, "Every state has at least one structurally deficient bridge, which the US Department of Transportation (DOT) defines as when one or more key bridge components (e.g. the deck...

Vietnam’s “Gold Bridge” is must-see

No, it’s not a scene from Pandora or Middle Earth. This new footbridge near Na Dang, Vietnam opened in June, and it’s already making waves with tourists. The Cau Vang (Gold Bridge) does indeed have a golden hue, but it’s not the color that’s attracting visitors — it’s the two colossal stone hands, springing from the hillside, cradling the bridge in their palms. The bridge is 492 feet (150 meters) long and about 4,600 feet (1,400 meters) above sea level, with a fantastic view of the nearby Ba ...

Stop covering bridges in love locks

About two months before my wife and I got engaged, we went to Paris. We were both big fans of the show Parks & Recreation, and in the show, the two main leads declare their love for each other by putting a “love lock” on Paris’s Pont des Arts bridge. If you have traveled to any major city that has a bridge in the past 5 years, you have seen a love lock. They are everywhere now. The idea is simple: a couple crosses the bridge and puts a padlock on a section of the chainlink fence. The lock repr...
