the Coronado bridge

This is the Coronado Bridge and it connects San Diego to Coronado/North island.  It is certainly noticeable with the curve.  And the reason for the curve is what??, you ask.  Well, in order to qualify for government funding for the construction, the bridge had to be at least two miles long.  The distance from the mainland to the island was less than the required two miles so the engineers were able to increase the length of the bridge to 2.1 miles by "stretching" the bridge around a curve.  Clever.  Now, stay classy, S. D.
