HOLD ON TO WHATEVER YOU HAVE TO HOLD ON TO...

THE BRIDGE

Would you be apprehensive about driving 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 is an impressive 336 meters (1102 feet), making this

the highest bridge in the world. It is taller than the Eiffel Tower.

Intriguingly, the Millau Viaduct is not straight. A straight road could induce

a sensation of floating for drivers, which a slight curve remedies. The curve

is 20km in range. Moreover, the road has a light incline of 3% to improve

the visibility and reassure the driver.

It is an amazing engineering feat!

Slide the picture to the right/left to see the whole bridge! What a view! 787 feet high!

I wonder if they have the suicide phones installed.  Next to where I live we have the "Foresthill Bridge", the tallest bridge in cali.  And they have like 4-5 phones on the bridge that take you to a suicide hotline.

I wonder what the price tag is for that bridge.
