Cooper River bridge

Charleston, South Carolina

"The new Cooper River bridge is the longest single cable-stay bridge in North America.
With towers that are 570 feet high, it will dwarf the existing bridges (which were pretty
scary already). The design intent was for the towers to seem like masts and the cables to
look like translucent sails." --Spring

Thanks to Spring for phooning (and for the photo idea).
