I just saw this photo and realized that NASA is now faking aeronautical photos.

The shadows for the bridge towers go one way, the shadows for the lights and other bridge hardware go different ways.

The two clear shadows going into a different direction than the bridge's tower shadows are, in my opinion, not the shadows of vertical stuff on the bridge, but the shadow of the horizontal bar of some traverse - maybe for roadsigns - over the road. The very thin shadows of lamp masts look okay.

Harald's right; that's the beam across the roadway.

The interesting question is why the tower shadows show so little sign of perspective. I know the answer. Who else knows?

Surely telephoto. The more far you away, the less perspective effects you get.
