Three Bridges, LoDo, Denver, Colorado

Three Bridges in this photo: 1) On the right, the Light Rail Train is crossing the Light Rail Bridge, 2) On the left, the Coal Train is moving through a rusty Railroad Truss Bridge, 3) In the background, the new Millennium Bridge, a cable-stayed Pedestrian Bridge.

The Denver Millennium Bridge is the world’s first cable-stayed bridge using its post-tensioned structural construction. Its 200-foot (61m) white tapered steel mast rises above Denver’s northwestern skyline, connected to the bridge deck and foundation anchors by steel cables. This unique footbridge crosses railroad tracks and the regional light rail system, climbing no higher than 25 feet (8m) above street level, thereby minimizing the height pedestrians must climb. Located near LoDo (Denver’s lower downtown), the Millennium Bridge connects the popular 16th Street Mall with the Riverfront Park in the Central Platte Valley neighbourhood. (Wikipedia)
