German Water Bridge

Water Bridge in Germany.... What a feat!
Six years, 500 million euros, 918 meters long.......now this is engineering! This is a channel-bridge over the River Elbe and joins the former East and West Germany, as part of the unification project. It is located in the city of Magdeburg, near Berlin. The photo was taken on the day of inauguration.

Yeah. And there is something similar in northeast PA by Dingmans Ferry that was built like 100 years ago.

Quite a design. Can't wait to see the waterfalls after the first flood.
