Tokyo, Japan's Bridges: Shirahige Bridge across the Sumida River (3)
March 2012 (35.728 Degrees, 139.810 Degrees) Shirahige Bridge
A view from the upstream side of the Shirahige Bridge. A through truss means less room on the deck so the city put the lamps on the top chord. The sidewalks are supported by floor beams that extend past the truss. The river path ends abruptly at the bridge (only to emerge again on the other side).
