Contest #230 answer: Lake Urmia, Iran

Lake Urmia is the 3rd largest salt water lake in the world. It is situated in the NW of Iran, the Azarbaijan region.
It is drying up fast and becoming increasingly saline.

In the 1970s a causeway across the lake was constructed and left almost finished until 2008, when the remaining 1,5 km was completed with a bridge.

Despite anti-corrosion measurements, the bridge is already heavily rusting.
