|June 2011 ( 35.611 Degrees, 139.826 Degrees) Tokyo Gate Bridge|
The truss sections were fabricated in Osaka and carried to Tokyo by barge. Unfortunately, a typhoon caused some damage to one of the sections as it was entering Tokyo Bay. Each truss segment weighed about 7000 tons, and required a fleet of floating cranes to lift onto the piers.
Because of it's unusual shape the bridge has the nickname of 'Dinosaur Bridge.' It's scheduled for completion in October. When we were there, they were getting ready to put a riding surface onto the steel deck.
