This bridge is a cantelever deck plate girder bridge, with the suspended span hanging in about the middle third of the river crossing, nicely proportioned so you don't notice it except for the two expansion joints in the bridge deck and railings, and the hangers supporting the suspended span, visible on the sides of the bridge and largely covering the joints between cantelevers and the suspended span.
