How to climb the Rainbow Bridge
It's one of the most historic...and steepest...bridges in Texas. Built in 1938, the Rainbow Bridge between Bridge City and Port Arthur still serves as one of the tallest in the state.
Keeping that bridge in working order is an important job TxDOT inspectors and engineers take seriously. One of more than 1500 bridges in the Beaumont District, the Rainbow is inspected by a team of structural engineers armed with technology and experience.
Our latest video introduces you to the team of engineers and the support group whose job it is to go over virtually every nut and bolt. Find out why there's something much better at the end of this "Rainbow" than a pot of gold.
