Scenic Kentucky: Walking to Indiana on the Big Four

2013-04-14 - Louisville, KY - Photo by Pen. Foot and bicycle traffic has been consistently heavy on the Big Four Bridge since it re-opened in February. According to Wikipedia, "The Big Four Bridge is a six-span former railroad truss bridge that crosses the Ohio River, connecting Louisville, Kentucky, and Jeffersonville, Indiana, United States. It was completed in 1895, and updated in 1929. It has its largest span at 547 feet (167 m), for 2,525 feet (770 m) in total. It gets its name from the defunct Cleveland, Cincinnati, Chicago and St. Louis Railway, which was nicknamed the Big Four Railroad... On February 7, 2013, the Louisville ramp was opened for pedestrian and bicycle traffic. The Jeffersonville ramp is scheduled to be opened by mid-year 2013."
