The Norbert F. Beckey Bridge, or Beckey Bridge for short, carries Iowa Highway 92 and Illinois Route 92 across the Mississippi River between Muscatine, Iowa and Rock Island County, Illinois, United States. Completed in December 1972, it replaced the Muscatine High Bridge which stood from 1891-1973. A pillar from the old High Bridge still stands at Riverside Park in Muscatine.
The bridge which stretches 1,500 feet from Iowa to Illinois across the Mississippi River, is awash in a rainbow of colors emanating from 43 light-emitting diode (LED) fixtures.
