1923 Rainbow Curve Bridge

It's quick and easy to visit. Hopefully you will get the opportunity to meet Dean Walker; he is the caretaker for this site. He is filled with any information you may want about the area and Route 66! And he was the inspiration for Mater from the movie Cars.

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.
