Are words like truss, suspension, girder, arch, pontoon, and cable-stayed part of your everyday vocabulary? Did you watch Bridges Over Madison County just for the architecture? If so, the Historic Bridge Locator may be a great addition to your mobile phone. As your one-stop guide to bridges across the US, this handy little app provides the location, aerial view, and architectural background of over 4,000 bridges. Search for bridges to visit nearby or read up on ones across the country, virtually touring famous landmarks like the Brooklyn Bridge, Ambassador Bridge, George Washington Bridge, Delaware Memorial Bridge, The Chesapeake Bay Bridge, Golden Gate Bridge, Sunshine Skyway Bridge, Seven Mile Bridge, Mackinac Bridge, and the Tacoma Narrows Bridge.
Truss me, you’ll beam when you see how far our bridge database spans.
Know of a significant bridge that somehow didn’t make it into the app’s database? Help out your fellow users by pressing “Add” to add it. The Historic Bridge Foundation will review your submission and add it to the map. You can also submit reviews and photos, as well as edit existing information.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
