Verdigris River Bridge
Posted May 21, 2009, by Gene McCluney (mccluney [at] sbcglobal [dot] net)

What is nice about this bridge, is that the replacement UCEB is built lower, so the vintage bridge stands above and is quite striking in appearance, and views are good of it. It is right beside the replacement bridge.
