The Purple People Bridge connects the communities of Newport, Kentucky and Cincinnati, Ohio together as a safe and well-maintained regional attraction that serves as a historic landmark, people connector, recreational trail, event space, and an iconic community asset that improves economic development and quality of life on both sides of the Ohio River.

Since 2001, the Purple People Bridge Company have owned and operated the ever popular, “Purple People Bridge” – a pedestrian-only bridge that stretches 2,670 feet (.5 mile) across the Ohio River. Today the bridge is the longest connector of its kind in the country, and has linked both Kentucky and Ohio together since 1872.
