1931 BridgePhotographed: 2013

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.

Before Old Highway 80 was built to veer north at a larger bridge over the Sweetwater River, this was the original path that probably included the Bankhead Highway. The current asphalt veers to the right to meet Wildwood Glen Lane, the long-time route of US Highway 80. You can still seen the concrete seams over the original road. It's now a driveway through private property, although as you can see, the telephone lines still continue in the original path.
