Rainbow Curve Bridge - Route 66
The Rainbow Curve Bridge was built in 1923. The bridge is a single-span concrete Marsh arch bridge and is the sole surviving bridge of this type on the entire length of the former highway, located on Historic Kansas Route 66. It is an old bridge over Brush creek.
Traveler's can both drive and walk over the single lane bridge. The main highway no longer travels this quarter mile of road. In fact a small parking area is next to the bridge with an informational sign stating the bridge's history.[Gina Godding, 07/25/2010]
