Always fun to read about the history of Rt66 and other roads like them. I'm always hoping to ride an abandoned stretch and see an old suitcase filled with a couple million dollars of old mobster money. Ain't happened yet!:p Thanks for sharing the link ZDR1.

Interesting.

But from the article;
The "bent" Chain of Rocks Bridge in St. Louis Mo., is a cantilever through-trussed bridge, 5,353 feet long and 24 feet wide, built in the 1920s. It was named for the rocky rapids in the Mississippi River which were difficult to navigate. It had a bend, near the center of the bridge, that was added to make navigation easier through the dangerous rapids.
...and near the bottom ;
The Historic Canadian River Bridge, near Geary, OK., is the longest bridge on Route 66, it was built in 1933 and measures 3,944.33 feet or about 3⁄4 miles (1,203 m).
