The old road from Karakeçili towards Kırşehir crosses the Kızılırmak ( Red River ) at Köprüköy. The bridge is thought to date from the 13th century. Following the construction of the Kapulukaya Dam at Hacılar, some 20 km north, this road was closed. Today the lower part of the bridge is submerged below the waters backed up behind the dam.
View to the north-west.
The road was still open in 1990. BW 2019
