The Sageeyah Verdigris River Bridge

This page under construction

The old Verdigris river bridge at Sageeyah seemed to be a favorite hangout for old and young alike over the years. The bridge above and the waters below seemed to promote "Kodaking" in several generations. Now [2001] there is a new bridge being built alongside the old one and I suppose the old one will be removed when the new one is finished. I kinda hate to see it torn down because it has been a favorite landmark for many years, but I know a new one is needed. Like many of us, the old bridge is getting shaky and feeble and its time has come to be replaced.

Here are a few pictures, I have collected over the years, and some that have been donated. These were taken on, under, or somewhere around the old bridge. More to come as soon as I find some more or someone donates more.

Be sure to scroll to bottom of page for picture descriptions.
