Disraeli Freeway bridge in Winnpeg, Manitoba, Canada

I've tried this before but my replies keep getting disallowed. I'm new here.
Apologies if multiple versions of this post appear.
 
The answer is:
 
Disraeli Freeway bridge in Winnpeg, Manitoba, Canada
(not really a freeway but that's the local name for it)
 
I lived in Winnipeg as a small child and remember the distinct noise the metal deck of this bridge made when our car went over it.
 
Other info: The river is the Red river - starts in USA south of Fargo ND and flows north to Canada. Not a large river but famous for its huge spring floods due to the surrounding landscape being so flat. So much so that they built a ditch around Winnipeg to handle the overflow. It's a gigantic structure (google "Red River Floodway".)
 
I can't believe I joined this site after years of lurking just because Chris finally posted one I could get!

EDIT Someone else got it while I was waiting for the mods to approve my message. Too bad so sad.

Welcome!

In the U.S., by the way, that river is known as the Red River of the North, to distinguish it from the Red River that originates...well, I'm not sure where...forms a long stretch of the Texas-Oklahoma border and then flows through Louisiana to the Gulf.

I know it is not my turn... but I should want to ask you permission to post this picture.

... I will post at the same time in the Spanish thread about Guess the road and maybe you are so faster that you will guess it in advance than them!!
(by the way, first hint... motorway/highway/dual carriageway/anyothername in Spain)

1) Pic does not show up
2) You may only post a pic if you've guessed the previous one correctly.

EN2, Mozambique.

Edit:
Let's guess the one Joseph85 posted.
I'd say Argentina, for the roadmarkings and other, more obvious reasons.

Yet another edit:
How about here?

The lower interchange leads to this road. Which connects pretty much nothing with nothing.
