The Koocanusa Bridge Over Lake Koocanusa in Montana

The Koocanusa Bridge Over Lake Koocanusa in Montana

The Koocanusa Bridge, which crosses Lake Koocanusa, is the longest and highest bridge in Montana. With a length of 2437 feet and standing 270 feet (depending on water levels) above the lake, visitors to the bridge get great views of both the lake and surrounding mountains. This bridge is just off the Lake Koocanusa Scenic Byway, and a small parking and viewing area is available. Additionally, the bridge has elevated sidewalks on both sides of the road.

What's interesting about this bridge is that it really doesn't go anywhere. The bridge basically serves three purposes : 1) connects to a very small Amish community on the western shore of Lake Koocanusa, 2) provide a quick route into/out of the Yaak River Country when coming from Eureka, and 3) a handy shortcut for those recreating on the west shore of the lake.
