The answer - if you're talking about the Salt River Canyon bridge - is both! It all began in 1930, when Arizona Highway Department surveyors started looking around for a new all-weather route to Arizona's northeast region. They found the nearly perfect bridge site 43 miles north of Globe, at the Salt River Canyon. The Salt River Canyon Bridge spans one of the most dramatic canyons in Arizona. It was funded by the Public Works Administration, designed in 1933 by architect Lee Moor, and completed in June 1934. The bridge is a single-span steel arch. The design of the bridge approach was highly complex because of the multiple curvatures.
