Little Rock, Arkansas: Big Dam Bridge

This, as you could guess, is one damn big bridge. And it's on top of a dam.

Therefore, it's name is the "Big Dam Bridge." Pretty clever.

This is the largest bridge in the world built solely for pedestrian and bicycle use, at least according to the web site. It's more than 4,000 feet across.

The bridge is about seven miles west of downtown Little Rock, and connects to trails leading back to the city. It's been open since 2006. There are bike and road races in this area.

It could have been called the Murray Bridge, since the southern side is Murray Park, but the name that was picked is much more fun. Here's a video about it:
