We drove across the bridge and I took some pictures. It was raining, which dampened the experience a bit - pun intended. Neat piece of history.
When you wal on this bridge, you can feel it shake due to the cars going by, but other than that, it is a fine piece of historical architecture that linke Wheeling island to Downtown Wheeling with ease, and a short walk.
I like the historic aspect of the bridge. It was well maintained and I felt safe while crossing it. The pictures turned out great as well !

My daughter and I saw this bridge from underneath and above. The bike trail goes right underneath this bridge and there are so many opportunities for great photos. We also visited it around 10 P.M. because we thought it was illuminated every night but found out it isn't lit up. We don't know if it has to be later at... More
