The bridge closed to vehicle transportation in October 2008, but opened in November 2011 to foot and bike traffic. Spanning over 3,029 feet, the Meridian Bridge is the longest double-decker pedestrian bridge connecting two states, Nebraska and South Dakota.It was originally built in 1924 and was the first permanent bridge crossing the Missouri River. This unique bridge is a “double-decker” with one lane positioned above another and a lift-span to allow riverboat traffic to traverse the river. Up until 1953, it was operated as a toll bridge.
