"Many of the significant bridges in the United States are the result of a singular vision. The names Eads, Roebling, Modjeski, Strauss, and Ammann are immediately recognisable and synonymous with their achievements. Each of these designers has made an invaluable contribution to our understanding of bridges as well as additions to the portfolio of bridges unique to the United States. Most impressive is their confidence and ability to explore the unknown - while often producing some of the most visually and physically spectacular structures in this country..."
