Description 

Couldn't find much about this bridge. A BLM sign nearby says it was moved here from Cameo/Debeque Canyon in 1935. A now abandoned town just north of Palisade Co. near I-70 and I9/10Rd. There's a second set of suspension cables and towers with their concrete anchors dated 4/10/75. So lots of clues about previous life but not many answers. Ranch on far side suggests cattle or possibly a vehicle could cross.
