“Drive it every day”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 3, 2013

Love it. Great structure. Gets me to work with very little traffic. I believe it was built in preparation of the Brooklyn Bridge (sort of a "test" to see if it would work).

“History in the heartland”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 2, 2013

We've walked it, driven over it, sailed under it, yet never tire of seeing this 150 year old grand structure that was Roebling's tryout before building the Brooklyn bridge. It's a gem that is just one more standout on the jeweled Cincinnati riverfront. If you're lucky you'll get to see a paddlewheel riverboat down below, along with the barge traffic that is always just around the corner. Don't miss enjoying the blue bridge!

“important piece of history”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

Actually all we did was drive over it a few times but it is an impressive structure and knowing it was designed/built by Roebling makes it an important part of American history.

“It's just a bridge isn't it?”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

The Roebling is a suspension bridge and the date on it is (I think) 1865. It is a prototype of the Brooklyn Bridge in New York. It is blue, has a humming metal flooring that sings as one drives across. One can look down and see the Ohio River flowing westward towards the Mississippi. A sight not to miss.

“Great historical stop”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 12, 2013

If you have visitors, take a walk over the suspension bridge. It's a beautiful old bridge and it has great views of the city.
