The Mile High Swinging Bridge at Grandfather Mountain, NC and the two bridges that are less than a mile from my house, neither of which have names.

As any good Michiganian, I've walked the Mackinac Bridge several times now. As a resident of the Grand Rapids area now, I've walked on several of the bridges across the Grand River

One of my favorites to walk across though is the Steel Bridge on County Road 510 (old M-35) in Marquette County. It's a Pennsylvania through truss bridge moved from the Allegheny River to cross the Dead River in Marquette County. The one-lane bridge is still there, although later this fall the county road commission will be opening a replacement span just upriver. The original span will be closed to vehicles but retained for non-motorized traffic.

As seen in 1922 when the road was still M-35:

265 ft. High Truss Bridge, Dead River near Marquette on Trunk Line No. 35.
Negaunee Township, Marquette County. 52001


As of this morning, I can also add the International Bridge at Sault Ste. Marie, Michigan–Ontario to the list of bridges I've walked across.

The old Tar River bridge that used to be on Greene St, and it got moved to Town Commons park where it leads to the neighborhoods east of it. It's fun walking over there!

It's in Greenville, NC.

This bridge was a popular bridge for Pedestrians but has been closed down due to safety concerns. The City said it was temporary but it's been 2-3 years. Jefferson Ave Footbridge, Springfield.

The Chesapeake Bay Bridge Walk, in 1987. 
Walk the 4.3 miles across the bridge and then be transported back on a transit bus.

Finally conquered the Mackinac Bridge yesterday during the Labor Day Bridge Walk.  Major accomplishment for me not just for the 5 miles of walking, but conquering some of my demons.

The first few times I went over the bridge, my wife had to drive it.  Since 2003, it's no big deal for me, provided I have my comfort music playing.

I still got the heebie-jeebies looking down thru the grated lanes.  I also liked the motorcycle cop who humorously advised walkers not to look down.

Just a few hours ago (as I do every Tuesday) I did a round-trip circuit run from Pentagon City to the White House via the 14th Street bridge...

In 2016 for my friends' rehearsal dinner we walked across the Lorain-Carnegie Bridge (Hope Memorial Bridge) in Cleveland back to our hotel. The coolest part is the "Guardians of Traffic" sculptures at the end. It also connects the West Side Market to Jacobs Field on the downtown side with a panoramic view of downtown.

Since my last posting, I have walked across most of the Skydance Pedestrian Bridge in OKC. (The north end is closed for construction of the Scissortail Park.)

I recently walked over the Wawona Covered Bridge while hiking out in Yosemite.
