91-year-old Grand Canyon bridge named an engineering landmark

A 91-year-old bridge connecting the northern and southern rims of the Grand Canyon was recognized Saturday afternoon as a National Historic Engineering Landmark. The American Society of Civil Engineers celebrated the Kaibab Trail Suspension Bridge's designation with Grand Canyon National Park leaders and Grand Canyon Historical Society members at a physical landmark commemorating the achievement. The bridge, also called the Black Bridge, is one of two suspension bridges over the Colorado River in the span of 340 miles. It lies between the Navajo Bridge to the east and the Hoover Dam to the west.
