|March 2012 (35.714 Degrees, 139.803 Degrees) Kototoi Bridge
The Kototoi Bridge is one of the many bridges that were constructed across the Sumida River after the Great Kanto Earthquake. The bridge was damaged during World War II and subsequently repaired and widened. It is a continuous, three span steel plate girder bridge on concrete caissons. Like most of the road bridges across the Sumida it is 72 ft wide, with four traffic lanes and wide sidewalks.
We'll take a closer look at this bridge tomorrow.
