The John A. Roebling Suspension Bridge spanning the Ohio River between Cincinnati, Ohio and Covington, Kentucky. When the first pedestrians crossed in December 1866, it was the longest suspension bridge in the world at 1,057 feet. Pedestrians now use the bridge to get between the sports venues in Cincinnati (Paul Brown Stadium, Great American Ball Park, and U.S. Bank Arena) and the hotels, bars, restaurants, and parking lots in Northern Kentucky. That district at the foot of the bridge on the Kentucky side is known as Roebling Point. The bridge is named after its architect in 1983. Construction began in 1856 and continued during the American Civil War before be finalized in 1867. The bridge is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and is designated a National Historic Civil Engineering Landmark.
