Bridges are crucial to get you from one point to another if you’re crossing water. However, they might not be as safe as you think. Some should be approached with caution or not used. In the US alone, one out of every 10 bridges is considered “structurally deficient,” so they have issues and are known to be unsafe. Overall, some of the world’s bridges are quite literally terrifying.
Are you ready to see some of the most dangerous and terrifying bridges? They might not have any safety features or may send you up to heights that churn your stomach. Here they are:
Royal Gorge Bridge – Colorado
Colorado has an excellent amusement park full of fun at the edge of the Royal Gorge. However, you might get your first thrill from the bridge itself. It’s about 959 feet above the Arkansas River, making it the highest suspension bridge known in the United States!
Lake Pontchartrain Causeway – Louisiana
Once you start over the Lake Pontchartrain Causeway, you’re committed. It’s the only bridge connecting Mandeville and Metairie, and it’s 24 miles long or thereabouts. You’re surrounded by water, so make sure you’ve got enough fuel and go to the bathroom before the journey!
