Where on Cuyahoga Could We Do This?

This IS interesting.
Perhaps some new realignment of the Tow Path Trail is in order here.

From Stuff To Think About:

Water Bridge

Check out this bridge.

It took 6 years and 500 million euros to build! At 918 meters long, this is the largest water bridge. It was built over the Elbe River in Magdeburg, Germany.

I found a neat trivia question about the bridge: Did that bridge have to be designed to withstand the additional weight of ship and barge traffic, or just the weight of the water?

It only needs to be designed to withstand the weight of the water! Why? A ship always displaces an amount of water that weighs the same as the ship, regardless of how heavily a ship may be loaded. Neat, huh?
