    Awesome Bridge !

    Millau Viaduct

    Would you be scared to drive across this bridge .

    The Millau viaduct is part of the new E11 expressway connecting Paris and Barcelona and features

    the highest bridge piers ever constructed. The tallest is 240 meters (787 feet) high and the

    overall height will be an impressive 336 meters (1102 feet), making this the highest bridge in the world.

    Me too, it was really cool. Didn`t know it was completed though. It was on Discovery`s Engineering Marvels. Really cool show. Has China finished that giant damn yet? Remember hearing from U.S. engineers that the sediment in front of the dam was going to be a problem. Was going to take like at least a decade to totally fill up. I also believe the Earth`s rotation would be affected slightly. Like the 24 hr time period.
    If the Big Dig was in another country, heads would roll on the chopping block floor.

    Look at those clouds in the 2nd pic.... recipe for disaster, all that fog just at the right level. "Bebe, was that a Citroen we knocked over the rail?"
