McPhaul Swinging Bridge: Located 18 miles North on Highway 95, the McPhaul "Swinging Bridge to Nowhere" is a Yuma oddity.

Originally the Dome Bridge, the McPhaul Bridge was constructed by Yuma County and the State of Arizona in 1929. Built to allow users of the Yuma-to-Quartzite road (now Highway 95) to cross the Gila River, this suspension bridge, with a span of 798 feet, is no longer used after the road was diverted.

Although damaged in 1990 by fire, this bridge outlasted its replacement which was destroyed by the flood of 1993.
