The Interstate 24 Bridge may refer to one of two distinct bridges on Interstate 24.


I-24 bridge across the Ohio River

The Interstate 24 Bridge is a two-span tied arch bridge that carries I-24 across the Ohio River. Built in 1973, it is 5,623.4 feet (1,714.0 m) in length.[1] It is one of two road bridges connecting the Metropolis-Brookport, Illinois area with Paducah, Kentucky, with the other being the Brookport Bridge upstream to the east.


The Interstate 24 Bridge is a continuous box and plate girder bridge over the Tennessee River. It is just slightly upstream from Nickajack Dam and within sight of the Marion Memorial Bridge.
