Adams Creek Bridge DESTROYED
Posted March 16, 2008, by John Cross (jcross [at] fortsmithhome [dot] com)

This is the largest mixed span bedstead bridge that Gene my bridge buddy and I "have" photographed (sort of). This bridge celebrated it's 100th birthday by being torn down. We are from Arkansas where we have found no standing bedsteads and in Oklahoma we have photographed well more than a half dozen. Three of which on this day (in Okmulgee Co.)were closed or like this one, in the process of removal and total destruction.
