The Great River Bridge at Burlington, Iowa

This suspension bridge across the Mississippi River was built in the 1990s in Burlington. Before, the ancient MacArthur Bridge always seemed about ready to collapse anytime one was lucky enough to be driving across it to Illinois or back. The town on the other side of the bridge is (or was) Gulfport, Illinois. It has flooded many times, and apparently it is still not recovered from the last large flood of 2008; there was some talk of abandoning it afterward. Before the flood its population was about 200. Burlington's population hovers around 30,000. This photograph was provided courtesy of Becky Murphy.
