The Pennybacker Bridge, also known as the 360 Bridge, is situated in the city Austin , Texas in the USA . This vaulted bridge from special Japanese steel looks as if rusted and nicely fits into the surrounding area. The bridge was opened in 1982 and connects the opposite banks of Austin Lake.

About the bridge

The Pennybacker Bridge was designed by the outstanding bridge designer Percy Pennybacker. The bridge building process was unique in its time because the so-called COR-TEN steel was used and the Pennybacker Bridge was only the second bridge to be designed in this way in the world. The bridge is 451 meters long and no part of it touches the water surface. The bridge was built in such manner because the lake is popular for sailing on ships and water-skiing and the potential abutments could put people at danger. The Pennybacker Bridge is an important traffic route- there are two lanes in both directions as well as space for pedestrians and cyclists. There is a beautiful view of the lake and the surrounding hills from it but the view of the bridge itself is definitely worth seeing.
