The bridge is a walk and bicycle friendly bridge. State line is about center of bridge. So if do not go all the way across, at least go to the state line. Parking area at each side of bridge. Pretty view.

I walked across the bridge which spans the Missouri River between Iowa and Nebraska. There is a line indicating the border and there are informational signs along the bridge. It can be windy but I enjoyed the walk.

A short walk from my hotel, and as the weather was ok, I decided to walk to and over the bridge. Very nice view of the Missouri River and obviously quite popular with the locals for jogging and biking.

Being afraid of heights, I did not make it very far. My wife walked the entire stretch and got some neat pictures. Be prepared to feel the bridge move.
