Just combed through this thread, and I now have a few new bridges to add to the WAM Database; great examples! Feel free to check out the WAM Bridges page and let me know if I need to add any more.

Here's one of my favorites that tends to fly under the radar: The Salginatobel Bridge by Robert Maillart in Switzerland:
