Located in Virginia, this bridge is 23-mile (37 km) long. It opened in 1964 and links the Delmarva Peninsula with Virginia Beach and the Hampton Roads. It’s one of the most spectacular bridges in the world.
Many people have a fear that when they drive over a bridge, they'll end up in the water. This engineering masterpiece makes sure you do that, if in a controlled and dry manner. Also: twenty-three friggin' miles. Half a century ago, 2,000 workers crossed 17 miles of water with concrete, steel and rock. Seven would die. The others lived to tell of ferocious storms and hard-charging men. The crossing was officially named the Lucius J. Kellam Jr. Bridge–Tunnel.
