While he was building the Hansen Bridge in 1919, engineer R.M. Murray proposed an idea to build a bridge between Shoshone Falls and Pillar Falls. The bridge was to be the largest suspension bridge in the United States to interconnect large commercial possibilities with a unique scenic view. The bridge would have been twice the length of the Hansen Bridge, spanning 1,143 feet and costing $350,000 to build. Murray suggested charging a toll to pay for the bridge within 15 years. Unfortunately, the bridge was never built.
