This bridge actually was on Yale Avenue near 138th Street (138th and Sheridan, essentially, would be in the Arkansas River). The bridge reopened in 1986 following a rerouting of the creek to the north of the embankment and construction of a new roadway on that grade. The bridge is open today, but Yale Avenue ends a few blocks north at the Kimberly-Clark plant.
The bridge was at about 138th and Sheridan Rd. at the bottom of a steep hill. They rerouted the road and posey creek when they built Kimberley Clark. Me and my buddies road bicycles across it long before they ever built Sandusky Ave. Which was built for Semi's and Delivery trucks for Kimberley Clark. I lived across 151st St. north of the Cemetery about a 1/4 mi. west of Sheridan Rd. from 1957 until the state widened the highway.
