Roebling Suspension Bridge, Cincinnati: 7 reviews and 18 photos

The Bridge is named after John Roebling who designed it. At one time this was the largest suspension bridge in the world.

It is now the 70th longest bridge in the world. It was completed in 1866. It's span is 1057 feet long over the Ohio River.

I also noticed that it looks alot like the Chain Bridge over the Danube in Budapest, built only 15 years earlier.

This was his "practice bridge", he went from here to build the more famous Brooklyn Bridge.
