Tokyo, Japan's Bridges: Azuma Bridge across the Sumida River (2)

June 2011 (35.710 Degrees, 139.799 Degrees) Azuma Bridge
The Azuma-bashi is another three span arch bridge across the Sumida River. It is 492 ft long by 73 ft wide with four traffic lanes and broad sidewalks. The bridge is a popular destination for sightseers and provides a great view of the Asahi Brewery and the Sky Tree Tower.

The Azuma Bridge is composed of three deck arch spans supported on masonry pier walls and abutments. The arch ribs are attached to the bottom of the piers and abutments with steel, pinned bearings while the deck goes over the top. There are expansion joints on each side of the pier walls.
