Significance: Dead Indian Canyon Bridge is significant for its association with the Cameron Approach Road, constructed in 1931-35 as the first modern automotive road linking the south rim of Grand Canyon National Park to the eastern Navajo Reservation and regional highways in northeastern Arizona. The bridge is also illustrative of roads and road structures built within special federal legislative authority to connect western national parks through a park-to-park highway system.
