Sunset at Fred Hartman Bridge

Sunset at Fred Hartman Bridge – This cable stay bridge called the Fred Hartman Bridge is located out side of Houston Texas in the ship channel. The bridge was built to replace the Baytown tunnel when the channel had to be deepen for larger ships. This unique architectural bridge was completed in 1995. The bridge was named after Fred Hartman the editor and publisher of the Baytown Sun from 1950-1974. We had a hard time picking which image to select of the sunset at Fred Hartman Bridge on the ship channel outside of Houston to put on our website we took so many. This bridge is 2.6 miles long and spans across the ship channel from Baytown to La Porte Texas. The ship channel bridge is a cable stay bridge and is the longest bridge of it type in Texas. This bridge is the 77 largest in the world and one of four in Texas. The wonderful sunset at the Fred Hartman Bridge today made it difficult to pick which images to showcase as we had this incredible sky as sun set over the bridge.

Sunset at Fred Hartman Bridge –  Another capture of the Fred Hartman Bridge outside of Houston which runs across the ship channel between Baytown and La Porte Texas. This is a very long bridge which runs about 2.6 miles. On this day we had been in the area and decided to go see if we could capture it and boy did we get an incredible sunset. This bridge replaced the Baytown tunnel which went under the water because they need it to be deeper, As a child we would drive through the tunnel and I was alway scare it would collapse on us.
