the world's most spectacular roads

 

Located in the U.S. state of New York, the Governor Malcolm Wilson Tappan Zee Bridge is one of the most spectacular bridges in the world. This cantilever bridge is 16,013 feet (4,881 m) long and is said to be the scary of scaries.

The bridge crossing the Hudson River at one of its widest points was opened in 1955. It’s considered one of the top 10 most insecure bridges in the USA. It has a special fear associated with it because it's so long and it has no shoulders. From 1998 to 2008, more than 25 people committed suicide on the bridge. Federal and state authorities are currently constructing a replacement bridge, the New Tappan Zee Bridge.
