London Bridge was first constructed across the River Thames in London in 1831. It was dismantled and sold in 1967, because it couldn't handle the increasing traffic. The Purchaser, Robert P. McCulloch, had the pieces of the bridge marked, moved it to Arizona, and reconstructed in Lake Havasu City. Now the bridge stands reinforced, and is connecting an island to the main land city. The bridge has five spans. The longest is 45,6 metres. The entire length of the bridge is 280 metres.
