The Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial Bridge carries U.S. Route 1/U.S. Route 301 (Jefferson Davis Highway) across the Appomattox River at the fall line. It joins Colonial Heights and Petersburg, Virginia.

Originally constructed for an interurban streetcar service in the early 20th century, it was rebuilt in the 1990s and is toll-free.[1][2]
