Originally built in 1860, the Virginia Street Bridge has always been a landmark for downtown Reno. It is rumored that the bridge was a popular spot for newly divorced people to throw their wedding rings into the Truckee river. The 1905 bridge, which was linked to flooding due to its constricted openings for the river, was replaced by the current structure in 2016. The Virginia Street bridge is located a few blocks south of the main downtown landmark, the Reno Arch.
