A lot of great bridge pictures have been entered into the current contest, but I thought I'd toss this one in anyway. This is a view of the Mendota Bridge, which crosses the Minnesota River near the confluence of the Minnesota and Mississippi Rivers. When the bridge opened in 1926, it was the longest continuous concrete-arch bridge in the world. The name Mendota derives from the Sioux word Mdo-te, meaning "where the two waters meet."
