“The longest state spanning pedestrian bridge”

The longest pedestrian bridge to link two states, providing safe crossing from Omaha to Council Bluffs over the Missouri River for walking and biking enthusiasts, connecting to 150 miles of trails on each side. The Cable Stay bridge is 3,000 ft long, including the landings; the walkway is 15 ft wide, and allow visitors to stand about 60 ft above the river.

Lights outline the deck, cables and pylons at night, a spectacular sight! On the Nebraska side, enjoy the 3-acre Omaha Plaza with an interactive water jet fountain, Fiber Wave Sculpture, River Critters Environmental Play Area and access to the National Park Service Visitors Center.

Good stop to get out and walk to stretch your legs and take a photo in two states at once. State line for Iowa and Nebraska painted on the bridge!

Great photo op on the bridge with a labeled line separating Nebraska and Iowa. Take a picture standing in two states on a bridge over the Missouri River.

Great place to get out, stretch and take photos. We also went into the park service center also and learned about Lewis and Clark.

Great for a photo op and to stretch your legs! When it is windy you can feel the bridge sway a little. Very surreal feeling!

Great stop to take pictures of the state line on the bridge! There is also Lewis & Clark National Historic Trail Visitor Center right next to it, and the staffs are friendly and knowledgeable.
