Dogleg Bridge   2 comments

As mentioned in my previous posting, the Old Chain of Rocks Bridge is quite unique as it has a dogleg [20-degree bend] right in the middle:

A Bridge with a Dogleg

The reason for this unique feature: the planners had to allow for

  • a 90-degree angle for barges passing underneath, directly into or with the flow of the Mississippi, and
  • putting the foundations on solid rock.

The Old Chain of Rocks Bridge, crossing the Mississippi above-river of St. Louis, linking Missouri and Illinois. In the olden days the famous Route 66 lead  over it, and today it’s part of the fantastic (bicycling-) trails in the vicinity of St. Louis:

Not Too Trustworthy a Bridge   4 comments

I’m glad that the Hot Springs Creek Greenway Trail doesn’t lead across THAT bridge! Well, there’s no longer any railway traffic either. Luckily!

What a Decrepit Bridge!
