This unique bridge is located between Victorville and Oro Grande. It crosses the mighty Mojave River – the river of the desert’s namesake. The bridge crosses one of the only “wet” sections of the Mojave River.
It’s unique because it’s the only steel truss bridge that Route 66 crosses in California. It’s even more unique as compared to other ordinary steel truss bridges because it crosses the river at an angle, so the all of the steel girders intersect at odd angles.
