Most People Don’t Know The Story Behind Arizona’s Abandoned Bridge To Nowhere

Arizona is home to some rather impressive bridges and other engineering marvels, if we do say so ourselves. For example, there’s Navajo Bridge at Marble Canyon that is one of the highest in the nation and Roosevelt Lake Bridge, which is often called the most aesthetically pleasing bridge in the country. But for all those impressive spans of metal, concrete, and wire, some end up abandoned.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now:

We recommend checking out the bridge for photos by traveling to From The Farm, a farm and events venue that also has a delicious food stand that serves tacos and date shakes. You’ll be able to park here and walk to the McPhaul Bridge.
