- Marker Text

The Cameron Suspension Bridge spans the Little Colorado River north of the town of Cameron, which is located fifty-two miles north of Flagstaff on U.S. Highway 89 in north-central Arizona. The 1911 suspension bridge has a main span of 660 feet with a clear roadway width of 14-2" between curbs. To conquer the long span, engineers used a unique hybrid system of suspension cables combined with a through truss design. One of three suspension bridges in the state, the Cameron Suspension Bridge is the only example of this design type in Arizona.
