__Location 1:
Build a multi-lane bridge for commuters and tourists
Span: 2,000 feet
Crossing: River
Connects: City and major highway

Special Notes:
"I want a one-of-a-kind bridge that will span our beautiful river and welcome visitors from all over the world to our thriving city. Make sure the new bridge leaves enough room for sailboats on the river. Please don't build a bridge that looks like the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco or the Brooklyn Bridge in New York."
-- Mayor of Craggy Rock
