Check HAER online for info on Yellowstone bridges. Google "haer yellowstone" for lots of pages on yellowstone structures.

here's Fishing bridge:

https://www.loc.gov/pictures/item/wy0109/

A page with general Yellowstone roads history info, the first page I found: https://www.nps.gov/parkhistory/online_books/yell_roads/hrs2...

"During the summer of 1989, an Historic American Engineering Record (HAER) team, recorded the bridges and some road sections in Yellowstone National Park. Measured drawings were completed for seven bridges in the Park Cub Creek, Crawfish, Fishing Bridge, one of the Gibbon River Bridges, the Army Bridge at the end of the Fountain Freight Road, the Army Bridge over Obsidian Creek, and the Gardner River Bridge east of Mammoth Hot Springs. These bridges and the remaining bridges built or designed 50 years ago were also photographed to HAER standards. The HAER documentation with original photographs will be sent to the Wyoming State Historic Preservation Office, Yellowstone National Park, and to the Library of Congress. A copy of the documentation will be sent to the Montana and Idaho State Historic Preservation Office."

I'll have to agree with you Dana and Kay.The article really didn't say much besides the name and what I posted earlier.
