the world's most spectacular roads

Royal Gorge Bridge

Located in Cañon City, Colorado, in USA, it’s actually a tourist attraction. It was built in 1929 and was, until 2003, the highest bridge in the world, with a height of 1,053 feet. It’s one of the most spectacular bridges in the world.

In 2013, a wildfire destroyed much of the theme park. The bridge didn’t have stabilizing wind cables until 1982. The structure is 291m-high. The bridge was constructed in six months, between June 5, 1929, and late November 1929, at a cost of $350,000. It’s one of the world’s highest suspension bridges – hanging 956 feet above the Arkansas River, and one of the most cheaply built given its vertigo-inducing size. Various thrillists have also made use of the bridge for bungie jumping and other aerial acts including a man in a wingsuit who attempted to fly over the bridge in 2003 but ran into a pylon, and was instantly killed.
