The Kinzua Viaduct, when first constructed in May 1882, was the highest and longest viaduct in the world, measuring 301 feet high and 2,053 feet long. The need to transport coal, oil and lumber across the Kinzua Gorge inspired General Thomas Kane, president of the New York, Lake Erie and Western Coal Company and Octave Chanute, Chief Engineer for the Erie Railroad to design this colossal viaduct.
This fly over of the Kinzua Sky Walk offers a unique view of the bridge’s construction and the damage that resulted from a tornado in 2003.
