Triple Arches Bridge (1927)

One of the most unique bridges along Going-to-the-Sun Road, this three-span, sixty-five foot long bridge was designed in 1927 as an alternative to a large retaining wall. It is constructed of reinforced concrete and was built to span deep rifts in the mountainside where Going-to-the-Sun Road traverses the continental divide, known locally as the Garden Wall.
