The previous Broadway Bridge was closed in April 1986 and removed in September 1986 (above). The photos below shows a tree growing in place of the removed bridge in 2005 and prepoured sections being placed in 2007.
Shortly after the new Broadway Bridge was dedicated and the dignataries had cleared the area, traffic from Main Street was detoured to Broadway. This will allow the 2-lane Main Street Bridge over Blackjack Creek to be torn down and replaced with a 4-lane bridge.
A ribbon cutting ceremony on the new Broadway Bridge Wednesday marked the successfuly completion of the first phase of a cooperative effort between the City of Collinsville, Cherokee Nation, and Tulsa County. The next phase adds ODOT for the Main Steet Bridge. A few of the dignataries cutting the ribbon above were (L-R:) Trent Rogers, James Rigdon, Pam Porter, John Smaligo, Melodie Bateman, Stan Sallee, Buel Anglen, Brad Cobb and Bill Johnson.
