The Blair Bridge carries the Union Pacific Railroad's Blair Subdivision between the U.S. states of Nebraska and Iowa, across the Missouri River near Blair, Nebraska. It was built in 1883 by the Sioux City and Pacific Rail Road, replacing a car ferry.[1] Automobile traffic crosses via the parallel Blair Bridge (U.S. Route 30).
