Route 66 - Colorado River
Arch bridge at Route 66 Colorado River crossing.
Route 66 crossing at the Colorado River had several incarnations. The old Arch Bridge couldn't handle the traffic and was abandoned and eventually converted into a support for a gas line. The Red Rock Railroad Bridge was converted for highway use in 1947. All that remains of the bridge is a couple foundations.
