Slovakia Plans to Name a Bridge after Chuck Norris

Slovakia is cleverly and inexpensively rendering its border with Austria completely impregnable. How? It’s naming a bridge at a border crossing after action movie hero Chuck Norris:

The actor’s work has become a popular source of kitschy fun among Slovaks and a mainstay for local jokes about macho strength and invincibility. [...]

The voting will run until April. As of Thursday, 1,157 votes have backed Norris, 74% of the total, leaving the runner-up “Maria Theresa Bridge” far behind with 8%.

In the comments, describe the properties of the Chuck Norris bridge.
