Navajo Bridge
Challenging Nature's Barriers to Transportation

by Jerry A. Cannon
There are actually two bridges crossing the Colorado River in Marble Canyon. They had serious but very different challenges to their construction. The 1929 bridge needed a road just to get to it and the 1995 bridge needed agreement from many stakeholders. The author, Jerry Cannon, designed the second bridge. He was very aware of his predecessor Ralph Hoffman and needed to blend his bridge with Hoffman's. The book describes how and why each bridge was built with historic photographs of both construction projects.
