Are there any pictures of the supports? How many supports from the width of the road are there. Is it 3 on the ends? I saw a video and they didn't say what bridge it is and I think it is this one.

Some one asked earlier I did not see a response to. Why does this bridge feel bouncy, wavy on the flat portion? I swear it has been like that every since it was opened in 1990.

Why does the Albermarle Sound Bridge have a "wavy" feeling when driving on the flat part of the bridge on each side? It feels like your vehicle is bounching corner to corner, not up and down. I would like to know what the purpose of this is? I have never been on any other bridges that do this. Please let me know.
