John A. Roebling Suspension Bridge
A National Historic Civil Engineering Landmark
The longest suspension bridge in the world—1,057 feet main span—when the first pedestrians crossed the Ohio River here on December 1, 1866.
The first to utilize both vertical suspenders and diagonal stays spanning from either tower.
The cabling totaled 10,360 wires, compressed together and wrapped with an outer covering of wire into two cables of 5,180 wires each. The wire ropes were unwound from a spool on a barge, allowed to sink to the bottom of the river, then raised in unison from the riverbed.
