Looking north towards Lake Erie, in this photo is:
• The Main Avenue Bridge, completed in 1939, is 8,000 feet in length, and was the longest elevated structure in Ohio until the 2007 completion of the Veterans' Glass City Skyway in Toledo.
• The Detroit–Superior Bridge, a 3,112 foot long through arch bridge. The bridge links Detroit Avenue on Cleveland's west side and Superior Avenue on Cleveland's east side, terminating west of Public Square. Construction by the King Bridge Company began in 1914 and completed in 1918, at a cost of $5.4 million. It was the first fixed high level bridge in Cleveland, and the third high level bridge above the Cuyahoga. At the time of its completion, the bridge was the largest steel and concrete reinforced bridge in the world.
• The Lorain–Carnegie Bridge a 5,865 foot long art deco truss bridge crossing the Cuyahoga River in Cleveland, Ohio. The bridge connects Lorain Avenue on Cleveland's west side and Carnegie Avenue on the east side, terminating just short of Progressive Field. Pairs of statues designed by sculptor Henry Hering and architect Frank Walker – titled the "Guardians of Traffic" – stand on pylons at each end of the viaduct, symbolizing progress in transportation.
• The I-90 interstate bridge, which opened in 2013.
• A railroad bridge for the former Nickel Plate Railroad.
In the foreground you can see the MV Sam Laud is a diesel-powered Lake freighter owned and operated by the American Steamship Company. The former B&O train depot is in the center of the photo and the tall white building at the top right is the Carl B. Stokes United States Courthouse.
