We drove over this bridge to get to wheeling island. It is neat to drive over such a old bridge. Bridge looked up kept. Just a blast from the past on this old bridge.

As a structural engineer, we were taught the importance and significance of this wonderful historic bridge. What I didn't realize until I visited was that this is still a vital vehicle, pedestrian and bicycle transportation link for the city. There is nothing more satisfying than...More

This bridge is a landmark in Wheeling. It is worth a photo opportunity. Can get a nice picture of the bridge from I 70. Coming into Wheeling from Ohio the bridge will be on your right.
