The bridge was, for a time, the path used by Route 66 to cross over the Mississippi river.
It’s most notable feature is the 22-degree bend occurring at the middle.
The bridge now only carries walking and biking trails over the river although, in June 2003, Trailnet granted special permission to Hampton Inn's “Save-A-Landmark” Route 66 Caravan to cross the bridge.
The bridge was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 2006.
