The lowest of the three bridges visible. The relatively recent I-670 runs above Beardsley Road. The Beardsley Road bridge spans a section of the west bluff. Water running down the bluff runs under it. With the addition of I-670 it's possible the bridge could have been replaced with fill and culverts.
