Snow and ice can make any winter outing a challenge, but at least one part can be winter-proof. That is, if you live in Sweden.
This LED-lit bridge helps commuters stay safe in heavy traffic conditions, and it looks a little bit like a UFO.
Moving a bridge is no small undertaking, but that's exactly what happened in Oregon last weekend.
This is a terrible, terrible idea. It is, or rather could be, a bridge in Paris (called "A Bridge in Paris") that's made of inflatable tubing and three giant interconnected trampolines. It'll never happen, because people would sue the berets off of anyone who put it up for the injuries that would ensue, but wow, I want this to be real.
Bridge design can be so bland when it's just about building it longer. Toss in some imagination and a plain bridge can become entertaining. Add in a giant loop-de-loop and visitors will flip out....
One of our country's most recognized landmarks — the glowing, orange Golden Gate Bridge — is celebrating an incredible 75 years in service. Considered an engineering marvel when it was completed in 1937 it was the longest suspension bridge of its day at 1.7 miles. It has carried over 2 billion cars.
Ready for some driving? China's Qingdao Haiwan Bridge, the new world's longest bridge over water (bridges that are longer over land exist) is now officially open to road vehicles. Hope you bring some snacks!
Take a peek at these aerial views. Notice anything…different? That's because Clement Valla's series "Postcards from Google Earth" depicts bridges and roads that appear warped when you zoom in just the right way.
There's an old viaduct system in Italy — which is basically an elevated highway or railway — that officials there thought would cost too much to demolish to make it worth it. Instead, they put out a call on how to modernize it. One idea? Install dozens of wind turbines along its length.
China, which already boasts the three longest bridges over land, just toppled the Lake Pontchartrain Causeway in Louisiana to take the belt for the longest bridge over water, too. The country is now home to an impressive 26.4 miles of bridge over the Jiaozhou Bay, but that's not even the craziest part.
