“Cleveland's only suspension bridge”
This place is on private property. Listing for informational purposes only. Please do not visit without express permission from the land owner. The Sidaway Bridge is Cleveland's only suspension bridge. It is a pedestrian bridge that spans Kingsbury Run connecting two ends of Sidaway Ave. Sidaway Ave. begins at E. 65th Street and ends at Kinsman Road. This bridge was completed in 1931. It was in function until 1966. In July of 1966 there was a feud between a Polish-American neighborhood on one end of the bridge and an African-American neighborhood on the other side of the bridge. Someone set fire to the wooden deck and it was never replaced. There were talks from the Cleveland Metropolitan Park Board to move the bridge to the Bedford Reservation, but it has never occurred. Currently, the Sidaway Bridge is rusting away over Kingsbury Run.
Not visible from a car. You have to climb through trees to access a better view, so we just drove away.
Cool and creepy! We found this place just before dark and snapped a few photos. Not a safe neighborhood to take the kids to. Just sayin. . .
