Sterett Creek Bridge
Posted December 11, 2010, by Scott Lowe (dayoffguy [at] aol [dot] com)

There also were old concrete bridges in the Sterett Creek area.

All the rock and earth that went into building Truman Dam came from the Sterett Creek area. My family has many photos from the 70's of the Warsaw area.

If you come straight out of the bay that is Sterett Creek marina, the "concrete bridges" i rem are in this area, sunken beneath Truman Lake.

There were 2 to 3 small streams that fed into the Osage river just north of the bluff that Truman Lake Visiters Center sits on. Two bridges were concrete, a third was concrete arch type.
