Boring to Beautiful: Newport Transporter Bridge

NEWPORT TRANSPORTER BRIDGE A transporter bridge is a type of movable bridge that carries a segment of roadway across a river. The segment is called a gondola. It is slung from a tall span by wires or a metal frame. The design has been used to cross navigable rivers or other bodies of water, where there is a requirement for ship traffic to be able to pass. This is a rare type of bridge, with fewer than two dozen built. Only eight are in operation today. WHERE ARE THE EIGHT TRANSPORTERS?
