Frank "Gunner" Gatski Memorial Bridge over Ohio River at Huntington, WV

(Bridge Hunter; John A. Weeks III; 3D Satellite)

This is the second bridge built by the Hercules crane. (Luling was the first.)

This bridge "had precast concrete deck sections that were lifted into place." [A comment by TK on Lock #5A]

"The cable arrangement is asymmetrical, which means that the suspended deck is shorter on one side resulting in the need for fewer cables on that side of the span. Bridge was known as the East Huntington Bridge or East End Bridge until it was renamed in 2006 by the State of West Virginia after a local football hero Frank Gatski."
