The Gates Mills Interurban Bridge, known locally as simply The Walking Bridge, offers a pedestrian-only route over the scenic Chagrin River. The steel truss bridge was built in 1899 for the Eastern Ohio Traction Company as part of an electric railway that once connected the community to Cleveland.
The line was abandoned in 1925 and sat unused for a number of years. In 2004, the Gates Mills Community Club sponsored the restoration of the bridge for use as a walkway. Note that bicyclists who wish to cross the bridge are requested to dismount.
