Aerial Million Dollar Bridge Cordova Alaska Landscape

An aerial view of the Million Dollar Bridge in Cordova, Alaska where the Copper River looks gray in colour while the rest of the landscape thrives in the summer temperatures.

An aerial view of the Million Dollar Bridge, the Copper River, the snow covered mountains and the surrounding landscape gives one an idea of the wilderness setting in the Chugach National Forest in Cordova, Alaska. On either side of the bridge, you can see the gravel road which winds throughout the wilderness landscape to places unknown.

Between 1907 and 1911 the bridge and railroad were built which ended in 1938 as a railroad. In 1958, the Million Dollar Bridge was reconstructed for vehicles but in 1964, the Good Friday Earthquake hit the region and one span of the bridge was lost into the Copper River. With 19 million dollars worth of repairs put into the bridge in 2004 with the work being completed in 2005, the bridge is once again safe for vehicle use.
