Significance: The development of the Zion-Mt. Carmel Highway was significant to the development of the National Parks in Utah and Arizona. The Bureau of Public Roads constructed the 62' Concrete Arch Pine Creek Bridge as part of the Zion-Mt. Carmel Highway. Access to the four parks in this area, Bryce Canyon, Grand Canyon, Cedar Breaks, and Zion National Park was greatly improved with the building of the highway. Each component of the highway system is important as it relates to the development of this area and tourism as a major industry in Utah and Arizona. Due to the rugged terrain in Zion National Park, each bridge and tunnel was integral to the highway's completion.
