[Photograph 2012.201.OVZ001.5301]

Description: Photograph used for a story in the Daily Oklahoman newspaper. Caption: "That concrete and steel bridge across the Verdigris river on SH 51 between Coweta and Wagoner - the bridge that is built so that it can be raised to permit steamboats to pass under - has been completed. When the final link of the highway itself is paved within the next two weeks there will be a big celebration and ribbon cutting at the bridge site. The event is scheduled for August 25. Completion of that nine-mile stretch of SH 51 will open a new all-paved road from Tulsa east to Wagoner, across Fort Gibson lake to Tahlequah and on to northwest Arkansas......If and when the congressional edict is handed down declaring the Verdigris fully navigable and that large boats will be coming around the bend, construction engineers and crews soon could raise the top floor of the new bridge 35 feet to let the biggest boats go by. It is too early now to take up position on the river bank to watch for the coming of the first big boat. The new bridge has been named the "Robert S. Kerr" bridge. It was Sen. Kerr who fronted for the deal to make the Verdigris and other streams navigable. It is the senator the people will thank when the big boats come streaming under the bridge. He has been invited to attend the big party, and speak."
