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 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.

In the first Maryland picture, you are looking right at the Susquehanna River NEC bridge at the MARC Perryvile station. Too bad no trains.

Thanks!

 

*I'm quite surprised how much attention this thread has gotten since I first posted this :)

I was also thinking of just taking down the pics to save on the bandwidth. I guess I made the right call.
