The Mark Twain Memorial Bridge is the name for two bridges over the Mississippi River at Hannibal, Missouri, childhood home of Mark Twain, for whom the bridge is named. The current bridge, north of the original bridge, was finished in 2000. The bridge currently carries traffic for Interstate 72 and U.S. Highway 36. The state of Missouri has put up a stone picture of Twain on the Missouri side of the bridge.Put Mark Twain Memorial Lighthouse into our Hannibal trip app to see other points of interest to visit during your vacation in Hannibal.

The current bridge opened to traffic on September 16, 2000. As part of the construction project, U.S. 36 was rerouted further north, eliminating a dangerous sharp curve that had been on the Missouri approach. The cost of the bridge was $55 million.
Mark Twain Memorial Lighthouse reviews
Rode the motorcycle up to Hannibal and to the lighthouse. Excellent ride and excellent destination. The lighthouse is pretty cool, the view from the lighthouse is amazing! You get to really see some of Missouri’s beauty and the Mississippi River too.
I was photographing the milky way and stopped here for a quick stop. Really neat place. I got some good photos to. Ill post one I get them processed.
