The Newport Bridge: A Rhode Island Icon

The Newport Bridge: A Rhode Island Icon

Three decades to plan, three years to build, it's New England's longest suspension bridge.

Featuring breathtaking views from the towers' heights 400 feet above water, The Newport Bridge: A Rhode Island Icon will change perspectives on this iconic span across Narragansett Bay. The film includes never-before-seen footage of the original construction 50 years ago and untold stories of engineers, ironworkers, divers, and the political and community patrons who brought the dream to reality.

The Newport Bridge: A Rhode Island Icon is a local public television program presented by Rhode Island PBS.
