Description 

This bridge is one of two pipeline suspension bridges on either side of the Old Trails Arch Pipeline Bridge on this section of the Colorado River.

Both bridges are of similar design to the Grand Tower Pipeline Bridge over the Mississippi River in Illinois, although the two bridges on the Colorado River have significantly different appearances from each other.
