In Nashville, Tennessee, past the rising stars and failing talent, is the “Korean War Veterans Memorial Bridge”; simply called the Gateway Bridge. Since completing construction, this new bridge has won several awards and recognitions. Among them are the National Steel Bridge Alliance Prize Bridge Competition in the category of “Major Span.”
Often called the “New Front Door” to Nashville the Gateway Bridge gained the approval of a memorial bridge to honor the 134,000 military service members that Tennessee sent to Korea.
Nashville’s Gateway Bridge is Tennessee’s first through-arch structure and has a length of 1,660 feet. The bridge spans over the Cumberland River. There are various plans in the works about expanding the Gateway Bridge which has received praise for its innovative design.
