GO THE MIDDLE OF THE BRIDGE AND TURN RIGHT. . . . OR LEFT. . .
Here in Zanesville, it does work, and you don't get wet. The Y-Bridge spans the confluence of the Muskingum and Licking Rivers. The Licking flows into the Muskingum here; the Muskingum flows on south and ends in Marietta in the Ohio River.
The first Zanesville Y-Bridge was constructed in 1814. Several iterations (some of them wooden covered bridges) were washed away by serious floods before the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers constructed a series of dams and locks that now regulate the flow of the two rivers. The current concrete and steel bridge is the fifth in the series on the same location. It opened in 1984.
The Y-Bridge has been an aviation landmark for many years. Amelia Earhart was quoted as saying “Zanesville is the easiest recognized city from the air because of the Y- Bridge.”
Putnam Hill Park offers the best views of the bridge and the surrounding city. We couldn't have picked a more gorgeous day for our visit there.
