The Brookport bridge is one of the most fascinating bridges in the country. It crosses the Ohio River via US Highway 45 between Paducah, Kentucky and Brookport, Illinois.

It’s over 90 years old and carries over 5,000 vehicles over the river every day – its become a local legend due to the nerve-racking driving experience it offers.

(The bridge is entirely safe to travel and undergoes regular inspections by the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet. If you plan to visit, PLEASE follow all vehicular size and weight restrictions.)
