Simon Kenton Bridge: It's The Size That Matters
OK, so that may not sound that big. It's also true that the 323 feet of the bridge's main span doesn't really measure up to the 1,191 feet of the world's largest suspension bridge (over in Japan). But we did beat out the puny (290 feet) Tjeldsund Bridge in Norway. Norweigan bridges. They're so tiny.
Most importantly - for sheer river rivalry's sake - is that our Simon Kenton Suspension Bridge kicks Cincinnati's John A. Roebling Suspension Bridge's butt, as I'm sure the frontier woodsman Kenton himself would have won out in a fist fight against the architect Roebling. The fist fight's not really important though. What is important is that our bridge beats their bridge by a whopping... alright, so it's just one foot. Cincinnati's bridge is 322 feet long compared to Maysville Kentucky's bridge at 323 feet. But I still say that one foot is a big deal. Yep, imagine if the bridge had a one foot gap missing in the center of it and then tell me the size of the bridge doesn't matter.
