    Hi again HIKI I hope u r good and healthy ...... so now I'll talk about the (GOLDEN GATE BRIDGE) .. so how to start ummmm . ok I'll go direct in the post hope u like it (Look Down.. again)


    The Golden Gate Bridge is a suspension bridge spanning the Golden Gate, the opening of the San Francisco Bay onto the Pacific Ocean. As part of both U.S. Route 101 and California State Route 1, it connects the city of San Francisco on the northern tip of the San Francisco Peninsula to Marin County. The Golden Gate Bridge was the longest suspension bridge span in the world when it was completed during the year 1937, and has become an internationally recognized symbol of San Francisco and California. Since its completion, the span length has been surpassed by eight other bridges. It still has the second longest suspension bridge main span in the United States, after the Verrazano-Narrows Bridge in New York City. In 2007, it was ranked fifth on the List of America's Favorite Architecture by the American Institute of Architects.

    My Earth Research! Smile

    George Washington Bridge:

    The two-level George Washington Bridge (GWB) crosses the Hudson River between upper Manhattan (West 178th Street) and Fort Lee, New Jersey and forms part of Interstate Highway I-95.

    This suspension bridge was designed by Othmar H. Ammann who was the Port Authority's Chief Engineer during that time. Ground was broken for the original six-lane bridge in October 1927. The Port Authority opened the bridge to traffic on October 25, 1931.(The Building of the Bridge: A Gallery of Photographs) In 1946, two additional lanes were provided on the upper level.

    The lower level was opened on August 29, 1962. This increased the capacity of the bridge by 75 percent, making the GWB the world's only 14-lane suspension bridge, and it is now one of the world's busiest bridges. Mr. Ammann also served as a consultant on the addition of the lower level. In 1981, the George Washington Bridge was designated a National Historic Civil Engineering Landmark by the American Society of Civil Engineers.

    The George Washington Bridge is home to the world's largest free-flying American flag. The flag, which is located under the upper arch of the New Jersey tower, drapes vertically for 90 feet and flies freely, responding to breezes from the Hudson River or Palisades. The flag's stripes are approximately 5 feet wide and the stars measure about 4 feet in diameter. Weather permitting, the flag is flown on the following eight holidays: Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, Presidents Day, Memorial Day, Flag Day, Independence Day, Labor Day, Columbus Day, and Veterans Day.

    In New Jersey, the roadways leading to the bridge provide maximum flexibility permitting motorists to use either the upper or lower level. Two four-lane approach and departure roadways connect to the upper level, with connections to and from the lower level via two three-lane tunnels through the Palisades.

    The New Jersey approach system provides connections between both levels of the bridge and highways US-1, US-9W, US-46, NJ-4, I-80, I-95 and the Palisades Interstate Parkway.

    The twelve-lane Trans-Manhattan Expressway, extending eastward from the bridge to the Harlem River between 178th and 179th Streets, connects both levels of the bridge with Amsterdam Avenue, the Harlem River Drive and the 181st Street Bridge over the Harlem River. The Expressway connects directly with the Alexander Hamilton Bridge, which spans the Harlem River as part of the Cross Bronx Expressway (I-95), and the Major Deegan Expressway (I-87). Both the upper and lower levels connect to the Henry Hudson Parkway and Riverside Drive on the West Side of Manhattan. Sidewalks are available to the general public on both the north and south sides of the bridge. In New Jersey, the sidewalk entrances are located on Hudson Terrace in Fort Lee. In New York, the south sidewalk is located near the corner of 178th Street and Cabrini Boulevard. The north sidewalk is located near the corner of 179th Street and Cabrini Boulevard.
    In 2000, an Intelligent Transportation System (ITS) was implemented at the George Washington Bridge. The system uses automated incident detection information to decrease incident response and removal times. More than 30 state-of-the-art electronic variable message signs provide real-time decision making information directly to motorists on the roadways leading to the bridge. Also included are fully coordinated closed-circuit television cameras, and customer emergency call boxes.

    There are quite a few famous bridges around the wolrd but I have picked a few which most of you have probably heard about Smile

    1. The Tower bridge in London is a famous bridge which consists of 2 towers at both sides. It is normally very busy for road traffic and also has traffic going under it in the river so it has to belifted up at times.

    The Most Famous Bridges! - Page 3 700px-11

    2. London bridge is also fairly famous with its own song called "London bridge is falling down" which is obviously about London bridge falling down. affraid

    3. A very famous bridge is Sydney habour bridge which is probably one of the most famous bridges in the world. It is a beautiful bridge when it is night time and has all the lights on. It was formally opened on th 19th of March 1932 and since 1998 it has had fantastic firework displays on it at new years eve.

    3. Last but not least is San Fransisco Bay bridge which has been featured in quite a few films. It is a very long bridge and normally has busy traffic on it.

    I hope you likes my post about famous bridges and good look everyone!
