Old OK 3 East Fork Coal Creek, Coal County

Built in 1928, this 70-foot riveted Pratt pony truss has served two highways: OK 19 from 1928 to 1938, and OK 3 from 1938 until it was bypassed in the early 1970's. Above, looking through the span. The deck is 20 feet wide.  Below, a side view of the truss.

Below, view through the span. For an old highway bridge, this one is in reasonable shape, and not as badly bear up as its twin about a mile east.
