Didn't find it 8/22/2010 AZcachemeister couldn't find DV1090   Visit Log
A careful search of the described area revealed no evidence of the mark.
The mark was apparently destroyed when the bridge was rebuilt to widen the highway.
Write note 1/24/2006 Bucky & McGee posted a note for DV1090   Visit Log
I found a mark that matches the location description at N33 40.529 W113 57.679. It was at the center of the South bridge structure, about 75 feet West of the intersecting road to the South. It is marked "Arizona Highway Dept". The only problem is that the designation doesn't match. This one is marked 1383.76, which is not listed on Geocaching.com. So, unless someone clears this up for me, I guess it's not a "find". Pics posted.
