The bridge closed to vehicle transportation in October 2008, but opened in November 2011 to 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 “doubledecker” with one lane positioned above another and a lift-span to allow riverboat traffic to traverse the river. Until 1953, it was operated as a toll bridge. In 2015 the Meridian Bridge Plaza was added to the north end of the bridge and is now home PEST TECHNICIANS We will remove any pest from your business or residence. •Birds •Bed Bugs •Termites •Bats •Bees •Mice •Roaches •TAP Insulation •Fleas •Rats Call Us For A Quick Quote! 1-800-KIL-BUGS www.800kilbugs.com JIMMY JOHN’S ® 1101 BROADWAY AVE. ~ 605.689.5646 www.VisitYanktonSD.com | Yankton Visitors Guide | 13
