The Millennium Bridge was the first new bridge to be built over the Thames in London for more than 100 years. Usually, all new bridges across the Thames require an Act of Parliament to be passed. For the Millennium Bridge, that need was avoided: instead the Port of London Authority granted a licence for the structure, obtaining planning permissions from the City of London and London Borough of Southwark.
Its official title is the London Millennium Footbridge. But no-one calls it that. Instead, it’ll probably always be called the Wobbly Bridge. Around 80,000 people crossed the bridge on its opening day, with around 2,000 on the bridge at any one time. Those on the southern and central spans felt the bridge begin to sway and twist in regular oscillations. While there was no chance that the bridge actually would fall down, engineers felt that the wobble needed to be stopped.

The Walnut Street Bridge is one of about nine bridges on the Susquehanna River. Although it doesn’t fully cross the river, it still is one of the longest and most popular pedestrian bridges in the country. Its still-intact eastern spans have been lined with lights and the steel frame has been painted a luscious blue color. The bridge is also listed in the National Registrar of Historic places and the American Society of Civil Engineer’s Historic Bridge Journal. Today, it is the oldest surviving bridge (in near original condition) over the Susquehanna and is an important cultural icon for the people of Harrisburg.
Built in 1928, the Market Street Bridge is a stone arch bridge that spans the Susquehanna River between Harrisburg and Wormleysburg, Pennsylvania.
