The Cairo Ohio River Bridge is a cantilever bridge carrying U.S. Route 51, U.S. Route 60, and U.S. Route 62[2] across the Ohio River between Wickliffe, Kentucky[2] and Cairo, Illinois. Of all the Ohio River crossings, it is the furthest downstream; the Mississippi River can be seen while crossing the bridge and looking westward.

This is an authorized truck route.


Construction was awarded to Modjeski and Masters and the Mt. Vernon Bridge Co.[3] It was finished on November 11, 1938, and tolls were removed ten years later.[1] The Cairo Ohio River Bridge was rehabilitated in 1979 and is eligible for listing on the National Register of Historic Places.[3]
