I hope they did a better job of building the wide span bridge than they did in Minneapolis!

you want to see the Tobin/I93 bridge interchange in Boston. and a canadian trucker drove off it last year. The bridge is about 10 stories and has 360 degree ramp taking traffic from about ground feet to the top. It is a part of the most expensive road project in th eworms costong about 13+ billions with a B.

It's a Roundabout Bridge.

I bet you the Brits dipped their fingers in that project. /forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/ideathink.gif

Now that you've mentioned it, it sure sure looks that way! Found this little bit about it: "The Nanpu Bridge Interchange is an almost existential landscape of looping roads, circling and spiraling higher and higher, layered on top of one another, requiring drivers to go backward in order to go forward."

I think you're referring to Severn Bridge.

One of my sister has a terrible fear of bridges.....she cannot and will not drive over any bridge....panic attack. Fortunately, she's okay...though very very fretful if someone else drives. She all 'fraid of escalators and elevators.
