By June of 1946 when this picture was taken, the bridge's "age was beginning to show and some weak places had developed and there was talk of condemnation, it being unsafe for heavy loads. So it was no great surprise to anyone when truck driver Jim Jardy hauling a heavy bulldozer mounted on a low boy found one of those weak places and dropped through. Jardy and Bernard Ginther, operator of the bulldozer, were extremely thankful that they did not go...

If the bridge was only able to talk, think of the many interesting stories it could tell about the many travelers that passed over it between Wolcott and Routt County. Flood waters took it out twice, in 1952 when the King Mountain Reservoir dam gave way and again when high water took it out in 1962. After that it was never replaced." -- McCoy Memoirs, p.95.

Luten arches, which resemble a horseshoe, quickly became the most widely built concrete arch in America. -- Spanning Generations, p. 37
