The current pedestrian bridge is a pure suspension bridge. It is suspended on cables strung between two sets of poles that rise about 22 feet above the water level. The poles are set about 14 feet apart, while the bridge span is about 150 feet. This bridge is not open to the public. It may have been open to the public at one time, but today, it is used to support the operation of the dam.
The photo above is the suspension bridge as seen from the east side of the Mississippi River from a vantage point located upriver from the dam. The photo below is a bridge over the old powerplant intake that leads to the suspension bridge.
