The Purple People Bridge

Feb 6, 2015
Central Ohio, USA
This purple bridge spans the Ohio River (1/2 mile), one end sits in Cincinnati, OH and the other in Newport, KY. It is now privately owned, but started out its life in 1872 as a railroad bridge. It was privately purchased and renovated in 2003 and can be rented for events if you choose. They do leave it open for pedestrian traffic, though. There are 2 sides you can choose to walk over.

People have started to follow the trend of putting locks onto the fences to express their love for another or to honor the memory of those no longer with us.
