Webpage of HNTB, the firm that designed the bridge, has a great
aerial photo of the bridge that looks south across Quarantine Island towards
the Regency area. The page also has some stats about the Dames Point. For
some reason, civil engineers call it the Dame Point Bridge. This
site will also link you to info about some of the firms other projects,
including Boston's Charles River Bridge, another really cool cable-stayed
design with some superlatives of its own.
The City of Jacksonville's webpage has a aerial photo of the bridge taken from above Quarantine Island looking north. A perfect complement to the shot listed above.
A personal webpage that has incredible picture of the bridge at night during an electrical storm.
Dames Point History Profiles the 19th century lightship that aided navigation on the Saint John's at Dames Point. A segment of the outstanding Florida Lighthouse Page.
I designed this website because I went looking for the information on
the net and could not find it. I believe that if the internet is to become
the miracle of information that we desire, every one of us should take it
upon ourselves to fill in the gaps. The seemingly mundane facts of your
existance may contain a rare diamond of information to someone halfway around
the earth or next door. Please share your knowledge.
