1. Royal Gorge (southwest of Canon City, Colorado)
2. The suspension bridge in the Kansas City Zoo
3. Not really a bridge per se, but Bartle Hall over I-670 in KCMO

Most notable bridges that I've crossed, it's been by car or bus, but I have pounded pavement on a small number of 'em:

Burrard and Granville Street Bridges, Vancouver BC
Okanagan Lake (floating) Bridge, Kelowna BC (the first one, that is, some 20 years ago. Haven't trod the Bennett yet)
Esplanade Riel footbridge, Winnipeg MB
Rainbow Bridge, Niagara Falls
Alexandra Bridge, Ottawa ON-Hull QC
Golden Gate Bridge, San Francisco
Liberty footbridge in Reedy River Park, Greenville SC
Roebling Suspension Bridge, Cincinnati-Newport
Fort Duquesne and Roberto Clemente (6th St.) Bridges, Pittsburgh
10th Street Bridge and tunnel, Pittsburgh
Brooklyn Bridge, New York
Harvard Bridge, Boston (the Smoot-marked bridge)

And I've walked on the Rio Grande Gorge Bridge, thanks to a TNM&O bus driver who was good enough to stop on the bridge and let passengers wander about for a few minutes

I've done the International Bridge Walk in 2011, 2013, and 2014, and plan on doing it this year. :coffee:

I've only ever walked along 3 bridges that are part of a real road grid. None important. All going from Busleton to some other random neighborhood in Philly. They were: Busleton Ave (Northbound to 2nd St Pike [PA State Route 232], Southbound to Frankford Ave; US 13 from Robbins St to Roosevelt Blvd, PA 532 from Welsh Rd to Bridgetown Pike;  14.32 miles long), Krewstown Rd (Northbound to Walley ave, Southbound to Algon Rd and Benton av; I think of it as a spiritual successor to Algon as Algon ends right at Krewstown; 1.86 miles long), and Verree rd (county Quadrant Route 1001) (Northbound to Busleton Av [PA 532], Southbound to Oxford Av [PA 232]; 4.3 miles long).
I would not recommend walking along Krewstown Rd.







Wow I talk a lot

I went on one in 1987, that is where I took these photos --

How often do they have them?  Many years there have been none.

A few come to mind:
     1:  Golden Gate Bridge (about 4 times round-trip)
     2:  Brooklyn Bridge (just had to do it ca. 1989)
     3:  Colorado St. Bridge, Pasadena, CA (aka "Suicide Bridge") over Arroyo Seco south of Rose Bowl.
     4:  Deception Pass Bridges (both long south and short north) on WA 20 between Anacortes and Whidbey Island.
     5:  Like many other contributors -- Royal Gorge Bridge (actually took downward pix between slats, ca. 1985).
