Does this bridge look familiar? Well, check your coin collection. If you’ve got one of the West Virgina U.S quarters then flip it over to the back and you will see the New River Gorge Bridge.
When the bridge was opened in 1977, it was not only the world’s longest steel single-span arch bridge, but it was also the highest vehicular bridge. One of the most unusual things about this bridge is that it has an annual festival, “Bridge Day,” that takes place on it. The bridge is closed down every year for the festival. Bungee jumping and base jumping off the bridge are big draws.
The early morning mists rise from the river 876 feet below, making the structure look like it bridges the clouds together.
