Our Photo of the Day shows Marcelo Fernan Bridge, an extradosed cable-stayed bridge located in Cebu. It spans across Mactan Channel connecting Cebu Island to Mactan Island. It is one of the widest and longest bridge spans in the Philippines.
Marcelo Fernan Bridge was constructed with the help of the Japanese Government and opened in August 1999 to decongest the traffic from the older Mactan-Mandaue Bridge. The bridge has a total length of 1237 meters (4058.40 feet) with a center span of 185 meters (606.96 feet). It was named after Senator Marcelo Fernan, a political figure from Cebu City.
