The Leeuwarden Flying Bridge

By on January 20, 2009

This is a seriously cool bridge, located in Leeuwarden, Netherlands (where else?) You’ve got to love how the roadway has a cutout for the arm to drop into; clever!

One thing I’d like to know is, since there are so many Dutchmen in northwest Iowa, why we don’t have a bridge like this near Sioux Falls. Granted, they’re mostly a generation or two removed from the Old Country, and we don’t have much for canals or boat traffic… But still, what’s the hold up?
