BIG RIVER CROSSING IS PART OF THE BIG RIVER STRATEGIC INITIATIVE, A COLLECTION OF EFFORTS TO ACTIVATE AND CELEBRATE THE MISSISSIPPI RIVER AND ITS SURROUNDING LANDSCAPE. 


Together with Delta Regional River Park and Big River Trail, these projects create a new experience with the river that fosters a deeper appreciation of its significance and grandeur.  

Opened October 22, 2016, Big River Crossing is the longest public pedestrian/bike bridge across the Mississippi River, providing dramatic views of its ever-changing landscape. By connecting Main Streets in Memphis and West Memphis, the BRX ties together urban, rural, and natural areas and gives users recreation options unique to each setting.
