HISTORICAL FOX STONE ARCH BRIDGE CLOSED

Filed in Home Comments Off on HISTORICAL FOX STONE ARCH BRIDGE CLOSED

Sometime between Saturday night and Sunday morning, the stone arch bridge north of Cambridge, known as “Fox Bridge”, collapsed due to damage sustained during the recent flooding in Eastern Cowley County. Massive amounts of rainfall on Thursday hit that part of Cowley County causing flooding of several waterways including Grouse Creek. While flood waters had begun to recede over the weekend, Fox Bridge had been structurally weakened due to the creek cresting over the bridge and heavy currents slamming against it.

Unfortunately it succumbed to the brute force. The remaining two stone arch bridges north of Cambridge, (the Neer and Fromm bridges), are closed due to the roadways being heavily washed out by the flooding waters and will remain closed until road crews can complete the necessary repairs. Pudden Bridge, the triple arch bridge south of Dexter, also sustained some structural damage. It is currently closed and will remain closed until inspection of the bridge is completed and it is deemed safe to reopen to the public.  While we hope and believe the remaining century old stone arch bridges will be here for another hundred years, there are times when nature proves to be stronger than man-made structures.

Fox Bridge, built in 1910 was located on 62nd Road just east of 281st Road (Cowley 7).
