|August 2007 (37.3641 Degrees, 138.5462 Degrees) Ukawa Bridge|
Continuing upstream another 300 meters, we came to the third bridge across the Ugawa. The Ukawa bridge is two simple ‘I’ girder spans supported by a pier wall and seat-type abutments. All of these bridges are about 60 meters long. The only damage from the Kashiwazaki earthquake was some settlement of the sidewalk on the south end of the bridge.
We've been looking at the decorations at the ends of the U River crossings. The Ukawa Bridge just has pedestals with name plates and lamps, mounted on the wingwalls for some reason.
