Meridian Pedestrian Bridge 5 and Meridian Bridge Plaza Walnut Street south of 2nd Street The Meridian Bridge, a long-time landmark in Yankton, is the result of hard work and determination of local citizens. The bridge closed to vehicle transportation in October 2008, but opened in November 2011 to foot traffic. The bridge welcomes foot and bike traffic. Spanning over 3,029 feet, the Meridian Bridge is the longest pedestrian bridge connecting two states, Nebraska and South Dakota. It was originally built in 1924 and was the first permanent bridge crossing the Missouri River. This unique bridge is a “double-decker” with one lane positioned above another. It was constructed as a lift-span bridge to allow riverboat traffic to traverse the river. Up until 1953, it operated as a toll bridge. In 2015 the Meridian Bridge Plaza was established and is now home to a fountain, splash pad, benches, shading, green space, Yankton Riverwalk (sculpture trail) and also features Music at the Meridian; a local summer concert series held on select Thursday evenings during the months of June, July and August.
