Penobscot Narrows Bridge, Maine

This 2,120 feet (646 m) long cable-stayed bridge over the Penobscot River was completed in 1997 replacing a bridge from 1931. It is 135 feet (41 m) above the water. Apart from the engineering, the notable feature is the Penobscot Narrows Observatory, the tallest public bridge observatory in the world. The tower is 420 feet (128 m) high and allows visitors to view the bridge, the nearby Fort Knox State Historic Site, the Penobscot River and the Bay. (Picture source)
