The new US-136 Keokuk-Hamilton Bridge over the Mississippi River opened in late 1985. It is a very run of the mill highway bridge, and would be totally forgettable if not for a very graceful curve on the Iowa end of the crossing. While the new bridge is far more convenient and much more practical than the old swing bridge (which still stands just upstream), locals point out that you can hardly see the river from the new bridge due to the tall solid railings, while the view of the river was great from the old bridge since you were able to look through the structure.
