There are some great bridges in this thread, but I'm biased to Cleveland's - in 1996, eight of the bridges were given lighting treatments by Dealessi. Here's a link to the full list with pics: http://www.dealessi.com/civic/cleveland.html

For me, beautiful bridges are rarely the large bridges, they fit in the spectacular catagory. But beauty is often more subtle and doesn't need size.

These are some of the most beautiful bridges I can think of. None are giant, and these are in no particular order.

Paris has some of the most beautiful urban bridges of any city in the world, and I could just list off almost all the bridges in this city here. But I will try to limit them.

The le pont des Arts and le pont au Change, you must scroll to see both bridges on this photo
SCROLL>>>>>

I really like that Tampa bridge. It reminds me of a sail boat.

I understand what you mean, some of the smaller bridges are quite nice. Here's the George Mc Arther Bridge aka Bell Isle Bridge in Detroit. It's kind of long, but not quite as long as most of the bridges posted on here, and it's low.

Eads Bridge in St. Louis gets my vote:


It's impressive, and though it fell entirely into disuse in the 80s, in the early 90s it was retrofitted to carry the city's light rail line across the Mississippi, and a new bridge deck was later added to carry automobile and pedestrian traffic.

I just love the way that the substructure looks so intricate and yet so muscular and industrial at the same time. Beautiful in the same way as the Eiffel Tower. Extra points for being old (1874) and so useful in spite of its age.

I'm just showing two of the several bridges in the Quad Cities. (my photos)

Centennial Bridge (1940) between Davenport and Rock Island.
I cross this one every day.






Formerly called The Memorial Bridge, this twin-span suspension
between Moline and Bettendorf is now just called the I-74 bridge.
One span was completed in 1936 the other not until 1959.



Being that both spans are way too narrow for an interstate bridge, plans are in the making for its replacement (around 2015)

I love this one because it's so famous but most could probably not name it. There's nothing overtly grand about it, but it's still awesome. The setting also helps a lot.

I've seen those climbing tours on television and I honestly don't think my heart could take it.

Have you made the climb?

yes i have , but way before the climbs were legal , our climbs were at night also which was something you cant do anymore

Since then they have blocked off the entry point we used and since 9/11 i wouldnt risk it
