This is the main supporting structure of a pedestrian bridge that spans the Sacramento River in Redding, California. The construction itself is amazing in that it is cantilevered across the river supported by cables without requiring any pilings for support. The deck is made of glass. This main structure is the gnomon (I had to look it up) or the part of the sundial that casts a shadow onto the dial. This bridge is an actual working sundial.
