Google was kind enough to let me know about this story out of the Bixby Bulletin, Bixby bridge still being discussed.
Mayor Ray Bowen said he has met with the Tulsa mayor twice and has had a good discussion with the Tulsa team. Bowen added, however, that the topic has reached a point at which Bixby needs to meet with the Oklahoma Transportation Association.
“We have a place it can go, and we won’t bother anybody,” said Bowen, referring to a location within Bixby city limits near a bridge that fell in 1938. Establishment of a bridge in that area could also have a positive effect on the Leonard area.
An interesting development to be sure, although I'm not entirely sure what bridge they are talking about since I didn't live in Tulsa in 1938. However, I did find a reference to a bridge collapse in 1938 "December 9 - The collapse of the Bixby Arkansas River bridge on Highway 64." Which confuses me because there is still a bridge over the Arkansas on Highway 64. 64 turns into Memorial drive at E 171st St South. Maybe 64 took a different route in those days? Does anyone know where this proposed bridge site that, "won’t bother anybody" is?
