High Bridge - 275/308 feet high that spans 1,125 feet across the gorge of the Kentucky River between Jessamine county and Mercer county. High Bridge was the first cantilever bridge built on the American continent. When initially constructed, High Bridge was the highest railroad bridge in the United States.
High Bridge was rebuilt in 1911 using the same foundations. During construction of the new bridge, which was built around the original structure, rail service across High Bridge was only halted for forty eight hours.
