Dubai's Mile-Long Super Bridge

The construction crews in Dubai are getting set again to build a project like nothing else. The latest build centers around an enormous bridge that will connect parts of Dubai.
As if the Burg Dubai tower wasn't already taking the worldwide skyscraper race to new heights, this as-yet-unnamed span will be the world's largest arch bridge, with 2000 vehicles set to cross its 12 lanes—per hour, in each direction—when it's slated for completion in 2012.

At 670 ft. tall, Dubai's next super structure will stand higher than the George Washington Bridge (604 ft.) but fall short of San Francisco's existing Golden Gate Bridge (746 ft.). (source)
