It once bridged the great Gila River...
but now spans over shifting sands of the desert.
The Golden Gate Bridge over San Francisco follows this style.
It was built in 1929 - a 800 foot long suspension bridge was given the name Dome Bridge, later being renamed honoring an old-timer. Henry Harrison (Harry) McPhaul, who came to Arizona in 1897.
He was a guard at the Yuma Territorial Prison and was the only Yuma resident who ever became an Arizona Ranger.
The bridge was considered to flimsy for modern traffic,
so the highway was rerouted to a smaller bridge.
In 1993 this smaller bridge was destroyed by a flood...
but the Bridge to Nowhere still stands.
If you don't feel the bridge itself is worth the trip...
The FARM is!
