North Carolina - Looking northwest toward Hendersonville across site of the highest bridge in the State.  This is the Green River on I-26 between East Flat Rock and Saluda.  The dual bridges will span a distance of 0.198 miles at 218 feet above the Green River.  The steel encased concrete columns will remain unpainted, giving a rustic appearance to the bridge.  The longest columns will be 139 feet from footing to pier cap and will be approximately 13 1/2 feet at its base and 9 feet at the top.
