Traveling across this vast world is getting easier and easier everyday thanks to the efforts of some truly intrepid engineers. Sure, people have to get from one place to another, but looking at some of these bridges you have to wonder if there wasn’t a better direction that could have been taken. Here, for your consideration, are 15 of the world’s scariest bridges.
Royal Gorge Bridge, Colorado
Coming up on nearly 100 years in use, the Royal Gorge Bridge was built on the cheap in 1929. Up until the turn of the new millennium, this bad boy was the highest suspension bridge in the world, dangling precariously 956 feet above the Arkansas River.
Vitim River Bridge, Siberia
This converted train bridge was built across one of Russia’s busiest tributaries, the Lena River. Covered in slick ice most of the year, the six feet wide bridge can barely fit one car at a time. The Vitim River Bridge is considered so treacherous that simply getting across it alive is an accomplishment. Seriously, “the 34 people who have done it created their own Facebook page.”
Bamboo Bridge, Cambodia
Located in Kampong Cham, a city in the East part of Cambodia, the Bamboo Bridge is the major means of access to a nearby island in the dryer seasons of the year. Even crazier, the Bamboo Bridge is rebuilt every year and is expected to hold hundreds of people at any given time.
Captain William Moore Bridge, Alaska
Named for Captain William Moore, “a pilot, prospector, packer, trader and riverboat captain,” the bridge runs 110 feet over Moore Creek Gorge … and an active fault line.
Sidu River Bridge, Hubei Province, China
Let’s start here: the Sidu River Bridge is the current record holder for highest bridge in the world, “which hangs over 1,600 vertigo-inducing feet above a canyon floor, connecting what amounts to two mountaintops.”
Hussaini Hanging Bridge, Pakistan
And you think your daily commute is stressful. How would you like to traverse this wildly swaying rickety footbridge across the raging Hunza River every day? It looks as if any of those twigs or ropes could snap at any moment, and leaping between the broken planks is a life-or-death risk.
Quepos Bridge, Costa Rica
Meet the Quepos Bridge, a one-way path on Costa Rica’s central Pacific coast, that — shockingly — is fit for vehicular travel. And, if crossing this rickety little bridge wasn’t terrifying enough, it’s also a popular hang out spot for, ahem, the local wildlife.
Brave Men’s Bridge, Hunan Province, China
As if the 600 ft. height over the valley wasn’t terrifying enough, they went and made this suspension bridge out of plexiglass.
Millau Viaduct, France
Leave it to the French to do horrifying with style. Running across France’s River Tarn, the Millau Viaduct runs more than a mile and a half across a massive gorge. “A cable-stayed, masted structure, the bridge is delicate, transparent, and has the optimum span between columns.
Lake Ponchartrain Causeway Bridge, Louisiana
At a staggering 24 miles long, the Lake Ponchartrain Causeway Bridge holds the Guinness Record for longest continuous bridge over water in the world.
Confederation Bridge, PEI, Canada
Canada’s 8-mile-long Confederation Bridge links Prince Edward Island with mainland New Brunswick. More intimidating than the length of the bridge is the frigid waters over which it runs.
Eshima Ohashi Bridge, Japan
It’s not merely enough for the Eshima Ohashi Bridge to rise and fall with the sudden arcs of a rollercoaster. No, this scary bridge that connects the Japanese cities of Matsue and Sakaiminato also has undulations in the road on the way down. Nearly a mile long, the Eshima Ohashi Bridge is built that way so that fishing boats can pass under with ease.
