Driving a Truck over the Cairo Ohio River Bridge connecting Cairo, IL to Wickliffe, KY
This is the Cairo Ohio Bridge that carries US Highways 51, 60, and 62. It connects the town of Cairo, Illinois with Wickliffe, Kentucky. The bridge itself is the southern most crossing over the Ohio River before it meets the mighty Mississippi River. The bridge itself is a Cantillever bridge that opened in 1937. the total length of the bridge is 5,863 feet and 7 inches/1,787.26 meters long with the longest span between bridge piers being 800 feet/243.84 meters long, a width of 20 feet/ 6.10 meters, and a maximum vertical clearance for road traffic of 19 feet 6 inches/ 5.97 meters. This is all according to Wikipedia so I'd appreciate any additional info you viewers might know about this bridge.
It should be noted that at no point was I ever holding the camera. I placed it on my dash while I was on the road and I don't encourage others to hold anything while driving as that is considered distracted driving and that can go tragically wrong. Please use a wireless headset when on the phone and PLEASE STOP TEXTING WHILE DRIVING.
