Atchison, Topeka & Santa Fe
Topock, California
October 22, 1977

This massive Santa Fe bridge over the Colorado River at Topock, California, was the third one constructed, in 1945. An earlier (1890) bridge just south of this one was converted to highway use when this one was built; an even earlier (1883) bridge crossed the river much further north, just south of Needles, California, and was abandoned in 1890.
