Purple People Bridge

Purple People Bridge

Do you know where the longest pedestrian bridge which spans two states is located?

Above the Ohio River, connecting Cincinnati, Ohio, and Newport, Kentucky. And it so happens to be the color purple.

The Purple People Bridge.

You enter from one state and exit into another state. The total length of the bridge is just over a half mile long. The color was selected by a committee and it easily sticks out from the other bridges which span the Ohio River.

Zella and I crossed it without much fanfare. After spending a few hours at the very little Newport Aquarium, the trek back across the bridge was delayed. Apparently, they have no problem closing the bridge to people without much notice. It becomes quite a boring couple hours waiting for a bridge to reopen. Especially when the only other distraction beyond the aquarium is an equally very little mall.
