Partridge Creek Bridge

Here’s a new video of an old alignment of Route 66 that includes the Partridge Creek Bridge in Arizona, west of Ash Fork.

The bridge is known to Route 66 travelers because a tree grows from one end of the bridge.

According to noted blogger Mr. Zip, this alignment served as Route 66 from 1926 to 1965. The bridge itself dates to the 1920s.

At one point two years ago, this alignment appeared to be in danger of redevelopment. At the least, these plans seem to have been delayed, probably because of the poor economy in Arizona.

Panoramic views of the bridge can be seen here and here.
