At nearly a mile in length, Big River Crossing will be the longest public pedestrian bridge across the Mississippi. 


Big River Crossing is also the country’s longest active rail/bicycle/pedestrian bridge. It serves as the connection point of Main Street to Main Street, a 10-mile multi-modal corridor that also features the Delta Regional River Park and Big River Trail, creating ties to attractions between Memphis, TN and West Memphis, AR. 

No matter how you travel it, Big River Crossing provides opportunities for recreation and fitness with a whole new point of view. 


The pedestrian bridge is illuminated before sunrise and after sunset, but decorative lights are turned off surrounding train and barge crossings.


Big River Crossing is free and open daily from 6:00 a.m. to 10:00 p.m.
