This view shows the Broken Arrow Expressway, also known as the South Leg of the Innter Dispersal Loop, looking east from Cheyenne Avenue. All of the bridges shown were, essentially, built on the ground, as the dirt originally was near the pier caps. The section was excavated, and the retaining walls then were built, followed by paving. The Boulder Avenue and Main Street bridges are shown, as well as a utility bridge in the distance. Landscaping recently occurred along this section of expressway, as evidenced by the small plants adjacent to the retaining walls. The highway signs at right say "North U.S. 75, East U.S. 64, East S.H. 51." Around the bend, the left lane becomes an "exit-only" for northbound U.S. 75, while the two right lanes continue east. This photograph was taken November 18, 1983.
