bridge is a very large cantilever truss bridge. It also includes continuous
through truss spans immediately east of the traditional three cantilever truss
spans. These extra truss spans give the bridge a stronger tunnel-like experience
while driving over it, and an asymmetrical appearance when viewed from the river
or shore. The bridge is a high level bridge to provide for boats, and because of
the low elevation of the land it connects, an extensive approach system to bring
the road up to the height needed is present at each end of the bridge. Bethlehem
Steel Company fabricated the bridge, while Merritt-Chapman and Scott Corporation
erected the bridge.
This bridge was built as part of the initial development of
the Arlington Expressway.
