Tri-Bridges Around the World

Note: From time to time I had made few separate posts on the subject. In this post I have combined all such posts thus bringing all the Tri-bridges in one single post.

This post was last modified on December 21, 2014 where in five (5) new bridges were added. These have been marked with asterisk (*).



Tri-Bridges are 3-way bridges on which traffic crosses two water streams or a body of water from 3 directions and one can travel from any direction to any direction.

Because of their shape these bridges are generally called Y-Bridges. Some tri-bridges (for example at the bridge at Hiroshima) are referred as 'T' bridge because of their distinct 'T' shape.

It is also pertinent to note that many Y-Bridges are just fork bridges wherein the traffic from one direction bifurcates in two directions or vice versa and there is no three way traffic. Such bridges have not been included here.

In addition there are some recently built 3-way Interchange Bridges. It is debatable whether a 3-way or T-interchange can be classified as a Tri-Bridge or not. In a classical sense T-interchange is not a Tri-Bridge as the interchange is built at 2-3 levels to allow unhampered 3-way traffic and there is no physical trisection point. On the other hand the conventional Tri-Bridges have a distinct "T" or "Y" joint and the traffic from three directions physically merges/demerges over a tri-section point on water. In all likelihood the future 3-way bridges in heavy traffic areas will be T-Interchange bridges as conventional Tri-bridges cannot cater to large flow of traffic. However as this collection is about the conventional Tri-Bridges I am not including such T-interchange bridges in this collection.

There are not many Tri-Bridges in the World. Till now I have been able to identify only Thirty One (31) tri-bridges, out of which there are Twelve (12) regular vehicular bridges, Eighteen (18) existing pedestrian/foot bridges, One (1) disused foot bridge. In addition there is One (1) proposed foot bridge.

T-Interchange or 3-way Interchange Bridges
Although I am not including T-Interchange or 3-way Interchange Bridges in this collection but for the benefit of my readers I am listing some of these here and also giving links against each for viewing in Google Maps.


Aioi Bridge, Hiroshima, Japan
This 'T' shaped bridge is the historic and the tragic bridge which was used as target for the dropping of first atom bomb on August 6, 1945. The bomb missed slightly, exploding in the air over Shima Hospital located 300 meters away from the bridge. However the bridge was badly damaged due to the blast.

The original bridge at the site, meant for streetcars, was completed on December 12, 1932 and had a width of 15 metres. Later in 1934 a 'Tee' connection was added in its central section which connected it to the Island of Jisenji-no-hana (present Peace Memorial Park) and it thus got this unique T-shape. Perhaps it was this unique and rare sight which made it the centre of the target.

After the war, the bridge was repaired and put back in use but the bomb had taken its toll and the bridge gradually deteriorated. A new bridge was therefore constructed at the spot having total length of 123.4 metres, width 40 metres and has a streetcar track, 6 traffic lanes and pedestrian lane.

Few old pillars bearing the marks of the bombing are still preserved at the foot of the present bridge as a mute witness to history. Some of the girders deformed by the blast are also displayed in the Hiroshima Peace Memorial Museum.

Here is a model showing the town as it existed prior to bombing.

Bridge with Three Entrances (Ponte das Três Entradas), Portugal
Ponte das Três Entradas (Bridge with Three Entrances) is a Y-bridge on the confluence of rivers Alvoco and Alvo in Porugal. Located near Oliveira do Hospital, Santa Ovaia, Coimbra it was built in 1899 and its construction opened up the whole area connecting the towns of São Sebastião da Feira, Santa Ovaia and Aldeia das Dez.

Because of its unique shape and location, the settlements in the vicinity are also known as 'Ponte das Três Entradas'. The area has also now become a camping site and draws tourists  for outdoors activities like fishing and canoeing etc.

Chu Y Bridge, Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam
Chu Y Bridge spans Tau Hu and Doi canals to link Nguyen Bieu Street in District 5 and Hung Phu and Nguyen Thi Tan streets in District 8.

Original bridge at this location was built in 1937. However to cater for the rising needs of the traffic it was renovated and enlarged as a part of the East-West Highway Project. The new bridge was inaugurated on April 28, 2009.

Image Source: Google Maps

The following image which was uploaded on November 22, 2008 has 1968 tag. It is possibly the original bridge which was later renovated and enlarged.

It may be noted that nearby "Nguyen Van Cu" bridge (Panoramio Link) built as a part of the East-West Highway project looks like a bifurcated bridge and not a true Y-Bridge, hence I am not including it in this post.

Jasenovac Tri-Bridge, Croatia
The original 1973 bridge at this location, across the Sava and Una Rivers, was destroyed by Serb forces during the 1991 conflict. A new "Y" shaped bridge was built in 2005. One arm of the bridge starts from Jasenovac spanning the Sava river with Y-junction in the Uštica. The second arm takes the traffic to Uštica and the third arm which spans the Una river, crosses the international border connecting Croatia with Bosnia and Herzegovina.

John B. Whealton Memorial Causeway, Chincoteague, Virginia
The John B. Whealton Memorial Causeway, (locally known as Chincoteague Causeway) connects the mainland of the Eastern Shore of Virginia to Chincoteague Island. A connecting spur from the Marsh Island joins the main bridge at a T-intersection over the water, making it a classical three-way Tri-Bridge.

Louisa/Fort Gay Tri-Bridge
The Louisa Louisa/Fort Gay Tri-Bridge at the confluence of Levisa and Tug Rivers is a T-shaped bridge. Opened in 1906, it is reportedly the only bridge in the U.S.A. which not only spans two rivers but also connects two states (Kentucky and West Virginia), two counties (Lawrence County, Kentucky and Wayne County, West Virginia), and two cities (Louisa, Kentucky, and Fort Gay, West Virginia).

Its third arm in the centre, connects to a land mass in Louisa, KY which lies just upstream of the confluence point. This land mass is known as "The Point Section". Locals enjoy giving direction to stranger wanting to go to the Point section. In the words of my blog's reader vldecker;

' ...... when someone from out of town asked directions to "The Point Section" it was always fun to tell them to "go to the middle of the bridge and turn right"...... '

Margaret Bridge (Margit Hid), Budapest, Hungary
Margaret Bridge (Margit híd) connects Buda and Pest across the river Danube. It was built between 1872-76 and is the second oldest bridge in Budapest and one of the most widely used bridge. The main bridge has an angle of 165 degrees, is 637.5 metres long and 25 metres wide. Near about the mid point there is a small third arm leading to the Margaret Island. This extension was added in design at the last stages of designing hence the slight angle. However the extension was built almost 20 years after the completion of the main bridge.

The bridge got damaged in 1944 and was repaired after the war. Due to extensive use it needed repairs badly so it has been closed in September 2009 for a year. I understand the pedestrians/cyclists will continue to use it while cars and heavy vehicles will  have to use the other bridges till it is back in service.

Madrid Río Y Bridge, Madrid, Spain
This small Y-Bridge is part of the Madrid Río project for beautification of Manzanares River. The Madrid Río project was conceived when a portion of the Madrid ring road (M-30), which was running parallel to the River, was shifted underground, thereby creating about 10 kilometres long empty space along the river. This space has been utilised for beautification of the river bank by creating parks, pathways and range of sports, leisure and cultural facilities.

The Tridge, Brighton, Michigan, USA
While Tri-Bridges are a rarity else where these appear to be very popular in Michigan. This is the third one in the State; the other two being in Midland and Ypsilanti respectively. All the three are known as Tridge (Short for Tri-Bridge). I wonder if this naming is intentional or co-incidental?

This 3-way bridge is very popular location in town as it connects the business centre to the heavily wooded trail along the Millpond. An annual "Tridge-or-Treat Halloween Spooktacular" is held every year near the Tri-Bridge.

Trinity Bridge, Crowland, Lincolnshire, England
Trinity Bridge is the unique triangular bridge in Crowland, Lincolnshire. The bridge has three stairways that converge at the top. It is one of the oldest stone bridge in England. The current bridge dates to the 14th century (built between 1360 and 1390) is now grade I listed.

Originally it spanned the river Welland and its streams Nene, and Catwater which flowed through the town. The river was later rerouted and the bridge now sits high and dry in the centre of the town.
As per "Encyclopaedia Britannica, 11th Edition, Volume 4, Part 3 p.0535" (Source: http://www.gutenberg.org)
"The curious bridge at Crowland near Peterborough ..... which now spans roadways, the streams which formerly flowed under it having been diverted, is one of the earliest known stone bridges in England. It is referred to in a charter of the year 943."


From 'A Topographical Dictionary of England (1848)': (Source: http://www.geograph.org.uk)

"The Town, which is accessible only by artificial roads, consists chiefly of four streets, separated by watercourses, and communicating with each other by means of an ancient triangular stone bridge of singular construction, erected in the reign of Edward II. The bridge has one principal and finely groined arch, from which diverge three pointed arches over the streams Welland, Nene, and Catwater; it is in the decorated English style, and on one side is a mutilated figure of Ethelbald, in a sitting posture, holding a globe in the right hand"

Hacking Ferry Bridge (Proposed), near Mitton, Lancashire, UK
This foot bridge was planned in 2002 was supposed to be completed by 2005-06. However for some unknown reason it has not been built as yet. The bridge is planned to be located on the confluence of rivers Ribble and Calder, near Mitton, Lancashire, UK.

It is proposed to use glass-fibre reinforced plastic for the bridge so as to reduce the weight of the shell and the bridge can be built off-site, then lifted into place by helicopter.

I was in two minds whether to include it here not. Artist's visualization (shown below) of the bridge looks too impressive to be left out so I am including it here. Hopefully it will be built one day.

There is a tri-bridge connecting Louisa, KY and Ft. Gay, WV. It crosses the Levisa and Tug Rivers. It is "T" shaped and the land that connects in the center is part of KY and the towns refer to the area as "The Point Section". I grew up in Louisa and when someone from out of town asked directions to "The Point Section" it was always fun to tell them to "go to the middle of the bridge and turn right" There is also a traffic light at the intersection in the middle.

Thank you David for the link to Jiaozhou Bay Bridge (or Qingdao Haiwan Bridge).

It is a "T" interchange created over water and not a classical Tri-bridge. I will however include it in my collection.

Classical T-Bridges cannot handle heavy 3-way traffic and I feel that future tri-bridges which are likely to come up in busy areas may follow the T-interchange concept.
