Built Wide: Bridge Across the Great Divide
Researching the world’s widest bridge proved just how competitive architects and engineers can be.
The Sydney Harbor Bridge is a steel through-arch bridge that carries not only vehicles but also two railroad tracks, a bicycle path, and a pedestrian walkway. It claimed the world title for the widest bridge — 160 feet — upon its completion in 1932.
The Super Bridge
The new bridge could hold a full-size football pitch crossways.
