The Gabriel Tucker Bridge formerly the People’s Bridge, is a bridge over the Mesurado River in Monrovia, Liberia. It was built between 1972 and 1976. The construction caused some minor disruption to local settlements and the Liberian National Museum had to be relocated in the mid-1970s to facilitate the structure.[1] It was designed by Gabriel Johnson Tucker, who Liberian President William R. Tolbert had named in his honor.[2]

The bridge connects United Nations Drive to Bushrod Island via Providence Island.[3]
