SR520 Curves

I didn't expect to be able to post a picture showing the curviness of the SR520 bridge. Seen from another angle, there's barely a kink to the otherwise straight structure.

This is the section elevated on hollow concrete tubes having very little shear strength. It's expected to fail when subject to earthquake forces, though the WSDOT doesn't say how strong the earthquake needs to be to compromise it.
