Little Sallisaw Creek Bridge

This is possibly the last picture taken of this bridge when it was still open to traffic. Apologies for the poor quality, it was getting dark when I took the picture. It was taken on June 13, 2006. The bridge was closed soon after this picture was taken, and was removed within a few months.

Also, this bridge was not located in Brent, but rather on the other side of Wildhorse Mountain, just south of the Sallisaw city limits.

Webmaster's note: The photo that was here has been incorporated into the main site.
