This is the one I meant! Somewhere I have 35 mm photos of it. I have been here a couple of times and walked across the bridge. It truly is amazing!

That is an awesome sight. When I first saw Saint John river, I thought it can't be the same as we have, the St. John's river here in Florida, and since I lived in Jacksonville (one end) and now live in Orlando area (the other end) I have lived near it (within a half hour's ride) and been proud of it my whole life. I see they are both unique, as yours is the largest river on the eastern seaboard and ours is one of the minority that flows north. I was going to say one of only two in the world that being the St John's and the Nile, but I just googled, and I see that I was taught that in error. It's been a long time since I was in school, and I guess it wasn't correct. They are both awesome sights and your bridge is quite splendid.
