Vehicles crossing the Lynx Creek Bridge part of the Old Black Canyon Road.

The August 17, 1922 edition of Arizona Highways noted this bridge was built to span Lynx Creek as part of improvements on Black Canyon Highway. This bridge was a New Deal project of the Works Progress Administration, which funded improvements totaling $123,000 ($2.6 million today) on sections near Prescott and Bumble Bee. The project was postponed by the Second World War, but construction restarted after the war and the highway was realigned north of Black Canyon City and past Sunset Point.
