A piece of history that is worth checking out if in the area. Blends in and therefore you would probably not be aware that it is something if you were to randomly drive by it.

If you are ever in Fort Morgan, check out this bridge. You can walk across the bride over the Platte River. There is a nice park at the end. Nice for an evening walk!

Easy to find off Main St. It spans the Platte River is quite long. You cannot drive on the bridge, but can walk it or possibly bike it. This must have been something in it's hey day. Looks beautiful!

Take a nice walk along the South Platte and enjoy the Rainbow Bridge. Built in 1922, the original road and bridge still stand in Ft Morgan as a stellar example of a rainbow arch bridge.
