 Basic Information
Type: abandoned railroad bridge
Status: Abandoned
Accessibility: piece of cake
Recommendation: I think that big old bridges are fun and interesting. If you do too, then go.
 Physical Information

Omaha, Nebraska
United States
  • Watch your step. You can fall 50 feet into the river.
  •  Interesting Features
    Both sections of the bridge rotated, to let river traffic past. The section which is in Iowa has been left in the open position. Some of the machinery is still there. The two control rooms have collapsed, but you can climb up the stairs to the platform.
     Security Measures
  • None. Go anytime you like.
  •  Historical Dates
    Built: 1899
    Closed: 0
     Required Equipment

    Information about the Illinois Central Railroad is here http://www.icrrhis...rg/milestones.html but the Omaha bridge is not mentioned. It says that the Illinois Central reached Omaha in 1899, so probably that is when the bridge was built.
