It is still the longest in North America. It is the highest vehicular bridge in the Americas, and the second-highest in the world - 3,030 feet (924 m) long and its arch extends 1,700 feet (518 m). Located along US Route 19 - 876 feet (267 m) above the New River, The New River Gorge is crossed by more than 16,200 motor vehicles very day -- talk about a thrilling place to take a walk.
