Miyagi, Japan's Bridges: The Utatsu Bridge (1)

March 2012 (38.716 Degrees, 141.523 Degrees) Utatsu Bridge
Continuing north on Route 45 to the town of Utatsu at the north end of the bay, which was devastated by the tsunami. The Utatsu Bridge has a long I girder superstructure on hammerhead piers that carried Route 45 along the shore and over the river. The spans over the river seem to be okay, but the spans along the bay were washed away.
We'll take a closer look at this bridge tomorrow.
