Just watched a 1970 TV Movie called "Weekend of Terror" with Robert Conrad, Lee Majors & Lois Nettleton. The bridge was used as a drop-off point for ransom. Here are a couple of crappy screen shots. Cool bridge!!

While taking pictures of this unique arch I was unable to find any plaque with further information. I am quite interested in learning more about this arch.
