“OK”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2013

It's a nice bridge but nothing to go out of your way to see. We drove across it a few times and walked across it from our hotel in Kentucky to Great American Ballpark.

“Walk on a Piece of History...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 27, 2013

The first thing many first time viewers say when they see this bridge is..."it looks similar to the Brooklyn Bridge". Since they were designed by the same man...John A. Roebling...there are obvious similarities.

I have walked and driven across this bridge many times in the past 40 years. I never tire of walking on the pedestrian path and stopping to observe the scenes from the bridge. I have enjoyed studying old photographs of the river scenes, especially those that include the bridge. Many sports fans park and walk from the Covington side to attend games.

One thing I wish could be added to the bridge would be historical photos with diagrams/descriptions showing you what the scenes looked like in days gone by.

Currently there is refurbishing going on on the eastern pedestrian side...the views on the west side are not as interesting, but still the experience is worth your time to take a stroll. And, best of all...it is free!

“I can write a review of a bridge? Sweet!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 21, 2013

So yea, we got this bridge in Cincinnati... it's pretty neato. I work on the Banks, and as I despise paying for parking, I cross this bridge and park in Kentucky, then walk it back to downtown to my job.

What to say about this bridge... it's a bridge. It sounds a bit funny, as the bridge isn't concrete but a bunch of metal and empty space that tires still manage to traverse just fine. You get used to it after driving over it several times, though.

It can get quite crowded on the walking space, as it's not very wide and sports games can draw loud crowds. Also, there can be homeless people/derelict people drinking alcohol in public, which can get a bit awkward.

Got a nice view, as it's centered between the stadiums. Definitely brings a nice start to a shift at work.

Yep, it's a bridge.

“Very cool bridge”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 14, 2013

I was hoping to see the suspension bridge and had to cross it several times. It is very cool! Lots of people were walking across it. I'm glad I got to see it.

“Classic last century design”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 14, 2013

Great looking classic bridge, it actually was the test design for the Brooklyn Bridge in NYC and it's heritage is seen at first glance. Easy access to walk across to Kentucky and the view of the riverbank attractions are outstanding, bring your camera.
