Bushnell, Nebraska: Original Lincoln Highway Bridge

Tiny century-old bridge on a dirt road that was once America's premiere cross-country highway. The bridge's concrete sides were given a fresh coat of red-white-blue Lincoln Highway paint in September 2023.

1st St., Bushnell, NE
I-80 exit 8. Turn north onto NE-53C. Drive 2.5 miles. After you cross the train tracks, turn left onto the dirt road (unmarked 1st St.). You'll soon see the tiny bridge straight ahead.
