Joe Creek Bridge
Posted March 9, 2019, by Rhys Martin (rhysfunk [at] gmail [dot] com)

The bridge is now closed to all traffic. The trailer park it once led to is now empty and the land is owned by the Creek Nation, which owns the nearby River Spirit Casino complex.

No news on any plans here, but I hope the bridge survives.
