Gates Mills Interurban Bridge Description

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.

Gates Mills Interurban Bridge Reviews

The Gates Mills Interurban Bridge isn't really what I would call it a trail, as it is listed as only .1 mile in length. What it is really, is a historical remnant of the electric rail systems that serviced Cleveland and many other large cities in this country prior to the asphalt road network we are accustomed to today. Since it was listed in TrailLink I paid a visit. If you are interested in a bit more of the history of the Cleveland & Eastern Traction Company that served Geauga County and the lands east of Cleveland check out the following link: http://www.trainweb.org/ceihsm/index.html
