The worst ever! Who thought of building a bridge so narrow, one way on, one way off! Its super scary! Always repairing instead of replacing. They collect too much money for the bridge to be in that condition! Claim stating a new one is coming...More

This bridge is the scariest. Yuck. I avoid this bridge if possible. It is extremely steep and I had to close my eyes while my spouse drove.

If you are queasy when crossing bridges you need to avoid this one. If not, the views of the water and countryside are pretty unique and you only pay the toll fare going from Me into Va.

This is a two lane bridge linking Virginia and Maryland. It's high to allow boats to cross under. There is a toll to get back out of Maryland ($6), but it free to leave Virginia.

The bridge is a very sturdy bridge but because its two lanes and it crosses a very large portion of the Potomac River, it just seems tha as you go up the incline, you could easily fall off the sides. There is no shoulders either...More
