The Liberty Bridge is a curved suspension bridge that spans across the Reedy River. The bridge is 345 feet long, 12 feet wide and 8 inches thick and the concrete reinforced deck is supported by a single suspension cable. It is an impressive site because of the distinctive curve and is cantilevered toward the waterfall from supporting cable on the outside. Below the bridge is the 28 foot Reedy River Falls.

While bridges with similar structural concepts have been built in Europe, this bridge is unique in its geometry and there is nothing like it in the United States.
