Robert C. Byrd Bridge

The Robert C. Byrd Bridge, known locally and generically by the name of its predecessor, the 6th Street Bridge. Opened October 1994 with a speech by the senator himself right before one of his many successful re-election campaigns.

Normally, I'm getting pictures of the river from up on this bridge, but this time I was able to get out on a boat and get a shot of the bridge. This is now my second-favorite bridge, mainly because it has such a good sidewalk that allows you to get decent photos of river scenes and Huntington, too.
