The pictured 1958 Topo from historicaerials shows US 66 (Highlighted in red.) crossing this bridge, not the modern routing to the north.

That's not the old 66 bridge over Bear, the 66 route it is too the north of I-40, marked E 1030 Rd on the map. The pic you have is the bridge over Bear on the old service road, and not Route 66.
