|March 2012 (35.763 Degrees, 139.755 Degrees) Toyoshima Bridge|
There are two Toyoshima Bridges that cross this part of the Sumida River (we'll look at the other bridge tomorrow). This bridge is a one span tied arch bridge on a skew that is 350 ft long and completed in 2001. It replaced a steel Gerber Bridge built in 1960 that slowly deteriorated due to ground settlement along the banks.
