This was taken while sitting in passenger seat of the car while travelling over this bridge.

Very nice. I'm not fond of some of those bridges either. I'll drive to the other end of Montreal to go over the the northern bridge. (Can't remember the names right now.) Or, go through the tunnel.

Very nice photo of the bridge and deck. I like the curved lines of the roadway.

Vanessa, since you brought up the subject of driving on those open grid bridge decks, I have to relate a personal experience about 30 years ago. I was driving from Oakland to Stockton, California in pouring rain. I had never driven across an open bridge deck before and was not aware of the hazards. I was going about 60 mph when I hit that grid. For the next 30 seconds, I was swerving back and forth from one side of the bridge to the other (4-lanes). I crossed all four lanes at least twice. Fortunately, there was no traffic. I finally slowed down enough to regain controll. When I got to the other side of the bridge, I pulled over to the side of road and stopped. I just sat there for about 15 minutes thanking God I was still alive and no damage was done. I learned a very important lesson that day. Portland has a couple bridges with open grid decks and I never go more than 25 mph on them when dry, even slower when wet.

Mercier Bridge in Montreal if my memory serves me correctly.

Great shot... would have done nicely in the "framing" category too.
