Pryor Creek Bridge
Posted December 13, 2015, by Wm. Mullies (amullies [at] yahoo [dot] com)

Sir: There is a bridge over the West, main branch of Pryor Creek, immediately East of my residence at 6279 E. Arnold Rd.

The original steel span was erected sometime prior to 1927 when my mother and uncle walked over it en route to Brush College school situate at SE corner intersection of 550 Rd.and East Arnold. Ca. 1965 the bridge was restructured, the sides lowered to admit modern machinery; reinforced and concrete floor ca. 2010.

My family has resided in immediate area since 1920.
