Granada Bridge (1999 photograph.)

It was one of several bridges constructed over the river during the 1930s and 1940s that replaced timber or steel trusses constructed between 1890 and 1910.  Consisting of five spans, the longest of which extends 90 feet, the bridge is notable for its relatively long spans and excellent state of preservation.  Listed under Highway Bridges in Colorado Multiple Property Submission.
