Notes
Survey number HAER AZ-26
Building/structure dates: 1937 initial construction
Significance: The Cedar Canyon Bridge & Corduroy Creek Bridge - two almost identical steel girder-ribbed arches - were the last links completed on U.S. Highway 60 between Globe and Springerville in 1937, and among the last links in the national highway. The two structures are thus historically noteworthy as original components of a regionally important northeast Arizona route. They are technologically significant for their representation of steel arch design by the state highway department. Visually striking as it spans a picturesque mountain canyon, the Cedar Canyon Bridge is an important, well-preserved example of an uncommon structural type.
