Purple People Bridge Climb
Now us civilians can have the same experience, on the Newport Southbank Bridge through the Purple People Bridge Climb. Nicknamed the "Purple People Bridge," it connects Cincinnati, OH to Newport, KY and is 2,670 feet in length, spanning 140 feet from the river at the tallest point. Beginning in June, participants will have the opportunity to climb "over the top" of the Purple People Bridge. Throughout the experience, they will be able to view beautiful vistas of the riverfront and the Greater Cincinnati / Northern Kentucky areas.
Apparently the experience of climbing over a bridge like this is unique to this area. There's nothing like it elsewhere in the country which leads me to this question: How can we get something like this set up for the Simon Kenton Bridge? : )
