Little Sandy River Railroad Bridge

Little Sandy River Railroad Bridge

Located in Carter County, Kentucky, in USA, this pratt through truss bridge over the Little Sandy River is one of the most spectacular bridges in the world.

The bridge is open to traffic. It’s 161.1 ft long and the road over the bridge is called Chesapeake and Ohio Railway. The road was built in 1873 as a railroad bridge, but then was converted to use as a vehicular bridge following railroad abandonment. Once part of the Chesapeake and Ohio's Lexington Subdivision, two more bridges remain between Fultz/Leon and Hitchins.
