High Quality Content by WIKIPEDIA articles Originally intended to
be called Murray Bridge, the Big Dam Bridge is the longest
pedestrian bridge to span the Arkansas River between Little Rock
and North Little Rock, Arkansas over the Murray Lock and Dam, and
is open only to pedestrian and bicycle traffic. The bridge is also
the longest pedestrian/bicycle bridge in North America that has
never been used by cars or trucks. (NOTE: The longest in the United
States is the Chain of Rocks Bridge on the north edge of St. Louis,
Missouri at 5,350 feet (1,630m), but it is a refurbished former
highway bridge.) At 4,226 feet (1288 m.) in length, the Big Dam
Bridge rises to 90 feet (27m) over the surface of the Arkansas
River and 30 feet (9.1m) over the dam. The span over the river is
3,463 feet (1055 m.), with the ramps on either side of the river
accounting for the rest of the length. The southern end of the
bridge is near Little Rock's Murray Park, while the northern end is
at Cook's Landing Park in North Little Rock.
