This bridge is a landmark in Wheeling. It is worth a photo opportunity. Can get a nice picture of the bridge from I 70. Coming into Wheeling from Ohio the bridge will be on your right.

If you love history and old bridges, this is for you. It was built in the 1800's and still remains open to traffic. You can also walk across it, but beware, it does sway depending on the wind and cars traveling across it!
