The Old Quarry Road Bridge
was installed on Perry Lake Trail by Eagle Scout Travis
Sutheimer (and other scout volunteers) from Lawrence. It was put in
place and approved by the Corps in September 2003.
This bridge is immediately adjacent to Old Quarry Road where
the trail follows the perimeter of the Lakewood Hills
subdivision. The trail entrance to the east of Old Quarry Road
is located approximately 100' south of this bridge.
The Old Quarry Road
Bridge on May 20, 2006. A volunteer repaired the damaged
handrails on the bridge.
2006, a person or persons with a 12-gauge shotgun decided to
remove the handrails from the Old Quarry Road Foot Bridge.
Among what is known, they used Remington Sport Loads (green casing),
in 2 3/4" length, 1 1/8oz shot, 7 1/2 shot. Ammo lot code is
A20EC506. It appears this same person(s) may have used Winchester
Universal (red casing) 7 1/2 shot ammo. This person(s) also hiked a
portion of the trail to the east, shooting at paint blazes on the
trees. A reward of $250 is currently being offered for
information that leads to the arrest and conviction of person(s)
responsible for destruction of this improvement on Federal
The Old Quarry Road Foot Bridge
survived flash flood waters in October 2005. Here you see the bridge
around noon on 10/2/05, about eight hours after the flash flooding.
Yes, that is the lake level just a few feet under the bridge!
Normally the lake is not visible from this
