The Rio-Niterói Bridge is a Box girder bridge that connects the cities of Rio de Janeiro and Niterói in Brazil. Its official name is the “President Costa e Silva Bridge”, in honor of the Brazilian president who ordered its construction. “Rio-Niterói” started as a descriptive nickname that soon became better known than the official name. It is 13,290 m (8.25 miles) long - 72 m (236.22 feet) high in order to allow the passage of hundreds of ships entering and leaving the bay every month. It carries 140,000 vehicles daily.
