One thought on “The Drunk Bridge, Norway

  1. Clearly, the design criteria here was to maximize clearance for watercraft, while minimizing the cost of the bridge. Other designs to accomplish this are suspension bridges, through-arch bridges, or a simple through-truss bridge which might have worked in this instance. The curved roadway is simply to gain elevation while limiting steepness of the road. A much larger example of a bridge that uses a curve to increase watercraft clearance is the San Diego – Coronado Bridge in California
