Some people aren’t fond of spiders, others have a problem with needles, and for a lot of people – it’s heights! For those people, the Chesapeake Bay Bridge is something they wish they could avoid! This bridge reaches nearly 200 feet high at its tallest point and spans more than four miles in length!
When driving across it, it feels rather narrow and high winds can be incredibly dangerous—on windy days, the bridge actually closes. Frightening as it is, there are some people who drive the bridge every day on their way to work. In addition, during summer traffic, there is a chance you could be stuck on the bridge for hours.
A massive ship can pass under the bridge while you’re driving over it! If that doesn’t give you the chills, you’re braver than most! Take a peek at this sky-high bridge for yourself by pressing “play” on the video below.
