Along I-95 and other highways

Nice!

 

The twin spans of the DMB are actually something like 30 years in age difference. I've driven over them at least 4x a year for the last 8 years for various reasons, usually puppy transport for rescue groups. Guess which one was built in the 30's? :cool:

I dunno why, but I just love the DMB they just look so wonderful.

Thanks! And not really, which one is the older one? [North or south bound].

I was thinking of a different bridge, it's actually 17 years. The eastbound span opened in 1951. When it could no longer handle the volume of traffic several years later a "twin" span was approved & built, completed in 1968.

 

The bridge is also the world's longest twin span and has been since 1968, 41 years!

I have 2 favorite spots on i-95.

 

One: Delaware house, for no particular reason aside that they have a Roy Rogers. :cool:

 

Two: the stretch that runs along the NEC, if you're lucky, or plan it right you can see a whole bunch of trains pass by at pretty high speeds, usually putting even the worst of the leadfoots to shame.

 

My house sits ~5 miles from an interchange, so it is used by me as a pax frequently.
