Severe droughts continued to hit the Great Plains and the dust storms devastated agricultural production as well as people's' lives for several years.

Taking 5 years to build, the 4,200-foot-long suspension bridge was an engineering marvel of its time - 11 men died during construction. The "international orange" color was chosen because it resisted rust and fading. To the present, it is the symbol of the City that is known throughout the world.
