    This bridge was built in 1880 and spanned the Petit Jean River on Main Street in Danville until 1920.
    The bridge was dismantled in 1920, then moved to another location in 1922. Then in 2013 it was moved again to where it is now, next to the police station where it can be preserved and used as part of a walking trail.

    When the bridge was dismantled in 1920, the same piers were used again for a new bridge (which is now gone).
    The piers at the original location are still there and can be seen as you cross the Petit Jean River on the bridge that is there now. Bridgehunter.com

    Which one is that? I don't recognize it. Is it the one over the Verdigris between Claremore and Oologah?

    That was the weekend of Labor Day. It was still in the 90's.

    Heck, it was still in the 90's here up until today.

    I took my pics this afternoon. I almost turned west at Octavia after coming down 259, that's my usual route toward home from up there. Today I went on down to Idabel and then headed back west. Sorry I missed you up there. :baldy
