Oklahoma Roads, Rivers, Bridges
8/25 and 8/27/2023

Several stops south and east of Claremore, OK

   8/25 - First stop - Bridge over Boggy Creek   

This old trestle bridge over Boggy Creek at the confluence of the Verdigris River, was probably once part of Keetonville Road.

The current Keetonville Road, just to the north of this bridge, was washed out a number of years ago and is closed beyond this point.

   8/25 - Second stop - The new pass through Keetonville Hill   

The old road up Keetonville Hill is still visible to the right (north) of this new pass. 

After much digging, and relocation, of all the rock from this area, the road now runs straight through this hill towards Owasso.

   8/25 - Third stop - The new OK-20 bridge over OK-66   

 With highway 20 being rerouted to the south end of Claremore, to avoid additional traffic snarls,

a new bridge is going over the highway and the railroad, to keep the traffic flowing.
