Vincent Thomas Bridge

430 North Seaside Ave, Los Angeles, California 90731 USA

“featured in Gone In 60 Seconds!”

The Vincent Thomas Bridge is a 1,500-foot (460 m) long suspension bridge, crossing the Los Angeles Harbor in the U.S. state of California, linking San Pedro, Los Angeles, with Terminal Island. The bridge is part of State Route 47. The bridge opened in 1963 and is named for California Assemblyman Vincent Thomas of San Pedro, who championed its construction. It was the first welded suspension bridge in the United States and is now the fourth longest suspension bridge in California and the 76th longest span in the world. The clear height of the navigation channel is approximately 185 feet (56 m); it is the only suspension bridge in the world supported entirely on piles. The bridge has featured in numerous movies such as the original Gone in 60 Seconds and its remake, Lethal Weapon 2, To Live and Die in L.A., Heat, City of Angels, and Charlie's Angels.

This bridge is a landmark...and fairly!! It has a massive span that can last tons of weight on it.

It stands there with its hierarchy and beauty and awaits for everyone to go and enjoy the views while passing through it.

Lovely structure to explore both structurally and architecturally.

Photographers, prepare your cameras!
