Worth it
Oct 2020 • Couples
So reviews said - if you are on Route 66 and want to see some original yesteryears history you need to drive over this bridge! So we did! And took pictures- now for the details. The Rainbow Bridge is an old bridge on former U.S. Route 66, now a county road. The bridge is a single-span concrete Marsh arch bridge and is the sole surviving bridge of this type on the entire length of the former highway. If your near by as we where it was worth driving or walking over and getting pictures- I probably wouldn’t go too far out of my way too see it but with Covid we where looking for outdoor- social distancing activities and this fit the bill!

One of a Kind Bridge

If you’re driving the Kansas portion of Route 66, you simply must drive on this bridge and join the millions of others who have contributed to its story.

Beautiful setting

It’s a beautiful setting for this pretty little bridge. It is in need of some repairs but hopefully will get a facelift for its 100th birthday

Beautiful Structure
Jul 2020 • Friends
This bridge sits off the regular route and is a beautiful structure to take pics at. It’s right there on Route 66 and is a must see for those traveling The Mother Road!

Cute piece of history
Jul 2020
It's hard to believe this bridge is 97 years old! It's survived well, and you're still allowed to drive across it. I imagine a lot of people in the area come here for graduation pictures. The Route 66 logos on the road need to be repainted, but I bet they will for the bridge's 100th anniversary, if not before then.

Great piece of old Route 66
Aug 2019
This is the last of three bridges that date to the old route 66. This lovely iron remnant of bygone days is a treat to see. You can still drive over this piece of history. It's a little jag off of the main road into Baxter Springs.

Route66

Nice photo opp as you can pull over and walk the bridge. It's probably way more beautiful when rainy. We liked it as part of history.

History you can drive on.

Beautiful bridge on old Route 66 that allows you to drive across. Only bridge of this type on old Route 66. A pleasant break from the interstate!
