Views: 110 as of April 28, 2014

Nikon D80, Nikkor AF-S DX ED 18-200mm VR lens at f5.6, 1/1600sec, ISO 400, 200mm

Cable detail, Mid-Hudson Bridge, official name, Franklin d. Roosevelt Mid-Hudson Bridge, opened to traffic August 25, 1930.
The bridge crosses the Hudson River, connecting Highland and Poughkeepsie New York.
The bridge is 3,000 feet (910 m) long with a clearance OF 135 feet (41 m) above the Hudson… the longest span 1500 feet (460 m). The chief engineer was Polish immigrant Ralph Modjeski, who had previously engineered the strengthening of the nearby Poughkeepsie Railroad bridge (now The Walkway over the Hudson). Primary contractor was the American Bridge Company of Ambridge, Pennsylvania with steel form Carnegie. The span is unique in that stiffening trusses were intentionally on top of, not below, the Deck.
