Bob Kerrey Pedestrian Bridge in Omaha, Nebraska

The Bob Kerrey Pedestrian Bridge is a 3,000 ft (910 m) footbridge across the Missouri River between Council Bluffs, Iowa and Omaha, Nebraska, opened in 2008. The bridge is named after former Nebraska Senator Bob Kerrey, who secured $18 million of federal funding for the bridge.

This is the first ever pedestrian bridge to connect two states.

The lights on the bridge were donated by Gallup, which has their corporate headquarters and Gallup University located on the Missouri River adjacent the Omaha landing of the bridge. The lights run the entire length of the bridge.
