Which Is the Widest Bridge in the World?

You probably can name some of the world’s longest bridges.

But do you know where to find the world’s widest bridge? It’s the Sydney Harbor Bridge, in the Australian city of Sydney.

This steel-arch bridge, built in 1932, has a total length of 3,770 feet and a span of 1,670 feet, making it one of the longest steel-arch bridges in the world. And the bridge is 160 feet wide, wider than any other long-span bridge on earth.

The Sydney Harbor Bridge is wide enough for eight lanes of traffic, two railroad tracks, and a pathway for pedestrians and bicyclists!
