Purple People Bridge, Former L&N+US-27 over Ohio River at Cincinnati, OH

(Bridge Hunter, Historic Bridges, 3D Satellite)

The existing 1897 trusses replaced the original Whipple trusses built in 1872. Railroad service was discontinued in 1987 when CSX transferred its former-L&N traffic to its former-C&O Bridge. Road traffic was removed in 2001. It was rehabilitated and reopened to pedestrians in 2003.
