New River Gorge Bridge in West Virginia: Nicknames?

I'm writing a story set in West Virginia, and I already know quite a bit about the area from visting and reading a bit about Appalachian history.

However, I don't know any current West Virginians, so I was wondering—is there a commonly used nickname for the New River Gorge Bridge near Fayetteville? (i.e. does it commonly get shortened to just "Gorge Bridge", does it have any common monikers, or is it perhaps one of those weird local features that is always referred to by the complete name?)

Thanks in advance!
