The bridge photo recently posted on the Glen Canyon Bridge page is actually a photo of Navajo Bridge. I am not sure if this photo is the "old" Navajo Bridge or the new one. Thanks for sharing a fantastic picture, I hope we can see it linked to the proper bridge.
My late Grandpa Robert Sailer designed that bridge. I don't know much else about it as of course I was like a baby then but I remember many times being told how proud everyone was of him. I think if you will research you will find this was the first steel arch bridge over such a large expanse!
I still have pictures of it from when it was first built. Everytime I see arch bridges I think of him! Thanks for a cool website!
This bridge appears several times in a 1960 episode of the television series, "Route 66" entitled "Layout at Glen Canyon." The show first aired on November 2, 1960.
