An Engineering Master Piece – Bridge between Sweden and Denmark

These are not digitally manipulated photo thoughts, but anther engineering master piece connecting two nations in the world, Sweden and Denmark.
This bridge, called Monitor-Merrimac Memorial Bridge-Tunnel (or MMMBT for short), is a 4.6-mile long combination bridge-tunnel system connecting two Virginia communities across the mouth of the James River. MMMBT opened in April 1992 after seven years of construction and a total cost of about $400 million.

The bridge (or should it be called tunnel) goes under water to allow movement of ships and In order for ships to pass, this bridge is half under the water. You drive down in the water and then come out on the other side. Truly a marvelous piece of engineering!!

    Your pictures are inaccurate. Those pictures are from the State of Virginia in the United States.
