The Corduroy Creek Bridge was a steel arch highway bridge on US 60, located near Show Low, Arizona in Navajo County, Arizona.

History[edit]

The 180-foot span ribbed girder arch bridge was built in 1937-38 with a total length of 250 feet.

In 1994 the nearby Cedar Canyon Bridge was substantially widened and upgraded, using the identical arch from the Corduroy Creek bridge to double the width of the Cedar Canyon bridge while rehabilitating the deck structure.[2]

The Corduroy Creek bridge was replaced with an I-beam girder bridge.[3]
