Bush Creek Marsh Arch Rainbow Bridge is the last remaining of it's kind on Route 66. In Kansas there where 3 of them built around 1923 on what would become Route 66.

The bridge was slated for destruction but was finally saved with the help of the Kansas Route 66 Association.

Today there is a bypass on which normal traffic can cross Bush creek, and the historic bridge itself can be crossed in the westbound direction only.
