There’s Something Incredibly Unique About This Abandoned Bridge in Nebraska
Nebraska’s long relationship with the railroad is well documented, and the state is packed with artifacts from the railroad industry. One such artifact is hiding out in northeast Omaha, and unless you were looking for it, you might not even realize it exists.
We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/
Today, the bridge is owned by The Illinois Central Railroad, but it appears to be on airport property. There are several signs warning against trespassing on airport land. We don’t advise visiting the bridge without permission. BridgeHunter has some additional information on the unique bridge’s history right here.
