Celebrating our two-lane highways of yesteryear…And the joys of driving them today!

Wow! (again!) VERY nice! Another old road site I've yet to see in my own state.

One interesting factoid is that the current I-40 bridge over the canyon has been in use at least twice as long as either of the bridges before it (1914 and 1937). I'm not certain of the build date of that particular section of 40, but the stretch between Flagstaff and Winslow was one of the earlier parts constructed in Arizona. I'd guess early to mid-1960s. I know that that section of 40 existed in 1968, as I rode on it in that year--wasn't yet old enough to drive!

Driuves home the point that many of our Interstates are getting rather old!
