Inside the Shushan CB museum, there is a scale model of the CB that was replaced by the Eagle metal bridge. We were told that a hunter had killed a real eagle & mounted him on the portal of the CB. That is where the bridge got its name & why there are eagles on the metal bridge today.

It is called Eagle Bridge, and the eagle emblem carried over from a predecessor bridge:

I wonder if this might not be called the Eagle Bridge. The story behind the adjacent town name is here:

Note also the ornament on the portal.
