Take A Drive Across One Of Iowa’s Last Singing Bridges Before It’s Too Late

Have you ever heard of a singing bridge? It’s the name for a certain type of bridge with a metal grate flooring that changes tone against your wheels as you drive over it. There aren’t many left, but there is at least one still around that you can drive across in Iowa: the Black Hawk Bridge in Lansing that heads across the Mississippi River to Wisconsin. You can still drive across it, true, but you’d better do it soon. Its replacement is scheduled to begin construction in 2024.

To learn more about the Black Hawk singing bridge, visit the Iowa Department of Transportation website here. Spill the beans – are there any other singing bridges still open to vehicle traffic in Iowa? We don’t know, but we do know that there are other interesting bridges across the Mississippi River as well, even if they don’t serenade their drivers.
