Park
“The Big Four® Bridge links Louisville Waterfront Park to Jeffersonville, Indiana over the Ohio River. The Big Four® was built as a railroad bridge in 1895, and decommissioned in the 1960s, when the ramps to the bridge on both sides of the river were removed. It was included in the original Waterfront Master Plan as a pedestrian bridge. The bridge opened to the public in February 2013, and it averages more than 1.5 million visits per year.”
