Zilwaukee Bridge: the perfect example on how not to build a bridge

Located in in Zilwaukee, Michigan, in USA, the Zilwaukee Bridge is one of the most spectacular bridges in the world. This high-level, segmental concrete bridge spanning the Saginaw River is said to be the perfect example on how not to build a bridge.

The bridge was opened in 1987 and is 8,000 feet (2440 m) long and 125 feet (38 m) at its highest point. The construction of the structure was plagued with difficulties. The surface of the bridge can be icy in winters.
