One Of The Highest Bridges In The Whole Country Is Right Here In Pennsylvania

The United States is home to quite a few mighty bridges with the tallest among them, the Royal Gorge Bridge in Colorado, clocking in at 995 feet tall. The nearest competitor to the Royal Gorge Bridge is the Mike O’Callaghan-Pat Tillman Bridge in Nevada. It stands 886 feet above the ground. Pennsylvania’s got some of its own high bridges, although the tallest bridge in the state, Emlenton Bridge in Pennsylvania, is quite a bit shorter than the Royal Gorge Bridge.
