Constructed in the 1920’s, this distinctive piece of architectural history is a flashback to dramatic times long forgotten. Before the bridge was constructed many died trying to cross the rigorous terrain of the Arroyo Seco. Restored in 1993 the Colorado Street Bridge was part of the famed Route 66 until 1940. Complete with Neo Classical arches, multi globed lamps, and old world charm the bridge still hangs on to its melancholic past. Yet it’s hard not to fall in love with the over 1400 feet of masculine concrete known as the Colorado Street Bridge.
