Take a Thrilling Walk Across the Jordan Bridge

06/01/2017

Blog - Jordan Bridge

From atop the Jordan Bridge, you can see for miles in every direction. Signs of industrial progress scatter the distant landscape. Boats come and go as birds flock overhead. For a moment, you forget the Elizabeth River-which stretches as far as the eye can see-lies a whopping 169 feet below.

Opened in late 2012, the Jordan Bridge connects Elizabeth River Park in Chesapeake to the city of Portsmouth. A thrilling round-trip of the bridge is about 3 miles and takes an hour to complete on foot. If cycling is more your style, you're more than welcome to join. Just be sure to yield to walkers.

How Do I Get to the Jordan Bridge?

To find this walker's gem, type 1400 Elizabeth River Way into your GPS. You'll be able to access the abundant parking from Poindexter Street, which includes public restrooms. And be sure to stop by during the summer to enjoy the warm weather and snack bar located near the park's dock.
