Architectural Wonders of the United States!!!

Government Bridge or Arsenal Bridge - Davenport, Iowa to Rock Island, Illinois

 

Designed by Ralph Modjeski and finished in 1896, the iron bridge has remained in service largely unchanged for over 100 years.

 Lock and Dam #15 Built in 1934

The biggest change was the construction of Lock and Dam #15 in 1934, which was built around and under the swing span.

 Lock and Dam #15 Built in 1934

The bridge is a twin deck structure that carries both rail (top level) and road traffic (bottom level).  It is really cool to drive across this Mississippi River bridge with a two hundred ton train traveling over your head!

 Rock Island Arsenal Bridge by Lucky Lang

It is one of two bridges in the world that can turn 360 degrees in both directions in order to allow Mississippi River traffic through.
