Top 10 Most Dangerous Bridges In The World (Photos)

You presumably drive more than one each and every day except you likely don’t go more than ones that are both stomach beating and regurgitation prompting.

From ones that influence to ones that are most likely too soak to ever be steady, these are the main 10 scariest bridges on the planet.

1. The Royal Gorge Bridge

The Royal Gorge Bridge in Colorado is the highest suspension bridge in the United States. That’s not the impressive part though.

What makes this bridge so interesting is that it didn’t have any wind cables when it was built in 1929. Those were added decades later, and today, the bridge is quite a tourist attraction.

2. The Monkey Bridges

The Monkey Bridges in Vietnam are a series of bridges that offer access across the Mekong Delta.

What makes these bridges so popular is that they are made from single pieces of bamboo. And how do you cross these types of bridge? Look at a monkey and do what they do.

3. Located in Pakistan

Located in Pakistan, the Hussaini Hanging Bridge is easily among the most dangerous bridges in the world.

The swinging bridge stretches across the Hunza river and is covered with all sorts of cracks. And to make matters worse, the tattered remnants of the old bridge hangs nearby.

4. The Seven Mile Bridge

The Seven Mile Bridge located in Florida is actually the second iteration of the original Seven Mile Bridge decommissioned years ago because it prevented boats to pass through.

Although it may appear safe, this particular bridge can be quite scary during one of Florida’s Hurricane seasons.

5. Deception Pass Bridge

Deception Pass Bridge is a Washington State bridge that connects two local islands. Prior to the construction of the bridge, these islands were only accessible via ferry.

Although the bridge itself looks safe, it is 180 feet high and quite intimidating.

6. The Pontchartrain Causeway

The Pontchartrain Causeway located in Pontchartrain, Louisiana is the longest bridge to cross over water in the world, even if it only stands 16 feet high.

What makes this bridge so scary, however, is that it’s actually possible to lose sight of land somewhere along the way, which makes some people feel as though they are traveling across a never ending bridge.

7. The Canopy Walk

The Canopy Walk, which is located in Ghana, is suspended 40 feet in the air and is around 1000 feet in length.

Despite the extreme height, though, the bridge is considered as one of the safest in the world.
