Daniel Carter Beard Bridge

Dedicated in 1981, the bridge is used to carry traffic for I-471 connecting with I-71 and Fort Washington Way in Cincinnati to I-275 to the South in Kentucky. Although the bridge is named after the founder of the Boy Scouts, most locals call it the “Big Mac” bridge. It has been said that the name came from the fact that McDonald’s planned on building a floating restaurant at the base of the bridge but it could also be because of the bridges big yellow arches.
