The Ironton-Russell Bridge is a metal truss bridge that connections the towns of Ironton, Ohio and Russell, Kentucky. This bridge opened in 1922 and was the first bridge to cross the Ohio River in this part of the tri state area (Kentucky, Ohio & West Virginia).
The bridge carries 2 traffic lanes and a sidewalk across the Ohio River.
In 2012 construction began on a replacement bridge just up stream from the current structure. When this new suspension / cable concrete structure is complete, the nearly 100 year old Ironton-Russell Bridge will be demolished.
