Valley City is known for its bridges, and many of the bridges that cross the Sheyenne River have unique components that make them iconic. The Rainbow Bridge on East Main Street, which was rebuilt in 2004 for safety reasons, is one of the few rainbow arch bridges still in use in the U.S. today.
The new Rainbow Bridge, which replaced the Rainbow Arch Bridge, was dedicated almost 10 years ago.
