The Rainbow Arch Bridge was built between 1922-1923 and is the only arch of its kind in the state of Colorado. Over the years, Rainbow Arch Bridge has overcome major floods without any major damage.
Rainbow Arch Bridge
Modeled after the work of Iowa engineer John March, the Rainbow Arch Bridge is considered to be the gateway to Fort Morgan. In 1984, Rainbow Arch Bridge was added to the National Register of Historic Places, and it became a Colorado Civil Engineer Landmark in 1992.
Currently used for pedestrian traffic across the South Platte River, this bridge offers great views of the water below. In order to reach the bridge, take the state Highway 52 north from I-76, off exit 80. For visitors that would like to learn more about the bridge, the Fort Morgan Museum on Main Street is a great place to spend the afternoon.
