Western Entry

US 18 enters the state of Iowa from South Dakota over the Big Sioux River, about two miles east of Canton, SD. If you have, or can get pictures of this site, please let me know.

Eastern Entry

US 18 enters into Iowa over the Marquette-Joliet Bridge, which spans between Marquette, Iowa and Prairie du Chein, Wisconsin. The current bridge was built in 1974, and replaced a suspension bridge built in 1932 (the first suspension bridge across the mighty Miss).
