Wayside Observation Shelter Sign at Navajo Bridge in Arizona

 

Text of sign:

 

Wayside Observation Shelter

 

Although the historic Navajo Bridge was opened in 1929, the road from Flagstaff to Kanab, Utah,  wasn't paved completely until

1937.  The improved road encouraged automobile travel, and motorists often stopped here to enjoy the views of the colorful 

canyon and the graceful steel arch bridge.

 

The Civilian Conservation Corps constructed the Wayside Observation Shelter between 1938 and 1941 to accommodate the 

increase in visitors to the site.  The shelter's rustic architecture is intended to resemble the remains of an early pioneer building and is 

typical of the architecture you will see throughout the national park system in the west.
