Missouri River - Ponca, Nebraska and Jefferson vicinity, South Dakota, USA

All photos by Patrick S. O'Donnell. Please do not reuse without permission. Patrick located the Ponca tower at N 42 35.465 W 96 42.096, mid-span at N 42 35.58 W 96 41.896, and the Jefferson tower at N 42 35.739 W 96 41.614. Patrick estimated the main span at 2,700 feet. Patrick visited the bridge in 2006, but it appears to have been completely removed later in 2006 or 2007. This was likely not the first pipeline suspension bridge at this location. See this bridge for more information.
