I always look forward to crossing the Burro Creek Bridge when I drive to Las Vegas from Phoenix. Maybe because it’s the halfway point between Las Vegas and my house, or if it’s because of the nice view of the canyon 388 feet below. I also like looking for the wild burros that often wander around in the desert here.
This duo of double truss steel arch bridges was built over Burro Creek in 1966, then the second span in 2005 to accommodate more traffic along Arizona’s Highway 93. It’s only 680 feet long.
