CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) -
From its decorative lights, stone towers and huge cables spanning the
Ohio River, the Roebling Suspension Bridge is uniquely Cincinnati.
Before 1866, crossing the Ohio River for Cincinnatians meant
taking a boat or ferry. As the economic necessity for a bridge linking
Ohio and Kentucky grew, so did the technology that allowed building
The Roebling Suspension Bridge is a celebration of
art, architecture, history and engineering but the idea of the original
centerpiece was hard for builder John Roebling to pass along to area
politicians and the public.
"There were people that thought
the bridge would cause flooding," said Patricia Van Skaik of the
Hamilton County Public Library. "A bridge this size had never been built
before so there was a lot of misinformation out there."

construction of the Brooklyn Bridge, the Roebling Suspension bridge was
the longest in the world and was the prototype for bridges to come. The
Roebling was also originally painted reddish-brown and then repainted a
vibrant blue to appear patriotic.
The decorative lights that
we all love today were added along the main cables in 1984 and the
tower's domed steel caps were fixtures since 1896. The original turrets
came back in the early 1990's.
The distinctive "humming" sound as you drive across the bridge comes from the tires against the metal bridge deck.
"This is the only one of his suspension bridges that is standing today...it really is a major landmark and treasure."
We can all agree that the Roebling Suspension Bridge is a Tri-state staple that has been going strong for almost 150 years.
