Restoring Historic Koyunbaba Bridge

The historical Koyunbaba Bridge is being restored: Restoration work has started on the Koyunbaba Bridge, which is the longest bridge built by the Ottoman Empire in Anatolia and is built by Sultan Beyazıt, in the Osmancık district of Çorum.
The restoration of the bridge, which was first brought to the agenda in 2010 and presented to the minister of the period as a file, was tendered in 2013. Making a statement on the subject, AKP Çorum Deputy Cahit Bağcı said, “In addition to being the longest bridge built by the Ottoman Empire in Anatolia, the bridge, which is included as the second Beyazıt Bridge in Ottoman archive records, also has an important feature in the Ottoman road network.

Stating that the bridge has a very important place on the historical Silk Road, Bağcı noted that Osmancık district is an important crossing point. Bağcı said, “The Empire of the World needed to build a bridge here over the Kızılırmak. In addition to this information, Hz. Koyunbaba's name was given as the name of the bridge by the people of the region. The bridge is 17 meters wide and 7,5 meters long, with one main eye and 250 sections, eight plus eight on the right and left.
