That’s former US 66, it was converted to pipeline usage.

Well, then it's been redesigned to carry no traffic.  :-D

More seriously, though, the image shows three pipeline bridgelike contraptions, and I don't think that all three were US-66. I admit, though, that I didn't look anything up here, and so I might very well be wrong.

You are correct, there is two standalone pipeline bridge structures that was designed from the onset as such.  I only know the Colorado Arch Bridge so well because it is a rare example of a classic piece of highway not being demolished or left to rot out in the Mojave:
