Slauerhoffbrug: Flying drawbridge

View Larger Map

I've always found bridges interesting. This one is called "Slauerhoffbrug," and it is located in Leeuwarden in the Netherlands. It actually lifts the section of road up and out of the way of the river traffic. This got me thinking, wonder if I can find it on Google Maps? After a quick search I easily found it, complete with Street View. I find myself learning about a place and quickly turning to Google Maps Street View to learn more about that place.
