Historically, it's interesting as the prototype of the Brooklyn bridge by the same builder, John A. Roebling. Started in 1856, progress was halted due to Civil War invasion worries. It was opened December, 1866. Politically, it's interesting in that even though streets in Covington, Ky and Cincinnati, Oh line up with each other, the Ohio legislature demanded that it not...

Ate at Montgomery Inn and walked to Newport after dinner. It's a pleasant walk through clean and safe areas of downtown Cincinnati. The view of the city at night from the bridge is fantastic!

Drive across and park for free on the Kentucky side. Then walk across this historical bridge to the beautiful Riverfront area where there's lots to do and explore. If you're a baseball fan, Great American Ballpark is right there as well.

Robeling's Cinci bridge was the design that was used by him for the Brooklyn bridge in NYC. The bridge connects Cinci with the City of Covington in KY. There is pedestrian walk on both sides of the bridge. I walked from Cinci to Covington and back. I really enjoyed my walk over the Ohio river and I could see the... More

We love the Brooklyn Bridge so we were excited to see this bridge which was his prototype for the project in NYC. It is a national historic engineering landmark and is very beautiful for photos. A nice stroll from Cincinnati to KY to see some sights there.

Great historic piece of the city. I jog across this any time I stay downtown or in Northern Kentucky and we often park in KY and walk across it to Reds games. It is really a neat symbol of the city. The murals on the sea wall to the west on the KY side are worth taking the time to... More

Drive or walk across. Designed in the 1850's by the builder of the Brooklyn Bridge. Drive over the bridge to the Kentucky side then you visit the Historic River city of Newport, KY

Designed well before its more-famous sibling in NYC. Spectacular to walk across. Very well maintained.

If you like bridges this one is another to see. We drove over it snapped a few pictures and were on our way. Due to construction downtown had to detour around to get to it. It is near the Bengals and Cincinnati Reds stadiums. While in the down town area definitely need to see the bridge.
