Two Versions of 2 Bridges

Navajo Bridge over the Colorado River at Marble Canyon in Arizona
The bridge on the left is the original, completed in 1928 and which is now a pedestrian bridge.  The bridge on the right is the new bridge completed in the 90's.  


  1. What a great job to update a bridge and make it look just like the original some 60 years later.

  2. I thought so, too. I was very impressed!

  3. Oh yeah! After the new bridge was completed, actually, the old rest area on the west side of the bridge was remodeled. Since then, it included an interpretive center and has been in business since 1997. The old bridge served as a pedestrian bridge for those who would want to witness the beauty of nature such as the Colorado River. Isn’t it fascinating how they were able to build bridges like this?
