Posted June 12, 2007, by Randy Brush

I am remember Cherry Rock Park Bridge long time. i know other bridge Cliff Ave. over Big Sioux River. It was open about 1890. It was two truss span bridge. It was closed due of truck accident since winder 1970. Police took driver in custody. He book in jail and charge driver under intoxcation. Cliff Ave. Bridge was dismantled after about 1972. New four lane bridge at Cliff Ave. over Big Sioux River and open late 1973. I know old bridge was lost for rest of place. I have no photo for other bridge in Sioux Falls. thank you.
