Fairfax Bridge

The bridge swings high over a deep gorge through which rushes the waters of the Carbon River. This riveted steel arch across the Carbon River was purported to be the highest span in the state in construction in 1921. At 494 feet long, it consists of a 240-foot three-hinged braced rib steel arch, two 14-foot steel towers and 16 timbered trestle approach spans.
