Mill Avenue Bridge

Search Tempe Arizona

The Mill Bridge is a concrete structure spanning the Salt River. Built in the late 1800s, it was the only link joining the cities of Phoenix and Tempe. Before the bridge, the only means over the river was by ferry boat. Hayden's Ferry that operated on the river was named after the father of the late Senator Carl Hayden, whose family owned the Hayden Flour Mill on the river.

The Mill Avenue Bridge is the oldest automobile crossing on the Salt River in the Phoenix metropolitan area, and has been in continuous use since its completion. The bridge was opened to traffic in August of 1931, but was not officially dedicated until 1933.
