The original route of Old Highway 80 through In-Ko-Pah Gorge, concrete still intact and looking spectacular. Interstate 8 crosses this road and the East-bound and West-bound lanes continue on either side of the road through separate canyons.
1931 BridgePhotographed: 2013
Location: Jacumba Hot Springs, California
This beautiful bridge was built in 1931 over the original Bankhead Highway bridge that was destroyed. Look in the background, and you will see telephone lines going through the original road that pre-dated US Route 80. The bridge is over the Arizona Eastern San Diego railway.
Bankhead Springs HotelPhotographed: 2016
Location: Bankhead Springs, California
Bankhead Springs, named for the historic Bankhead Highway, was essentially a suburb of Jacumba Hot Springs, at the Southernmost stretch of Old Highway 80 in California. The most notable landmark was the Bankhead Springs Hotel, shown here in modern times as a private residence. It would be lovely to someday be able to do a tour of the old hotel and take some interior photographs.
