Cottonwood Creek Bridge, Guthrie, Logan Co.

Standing in Guthrie just west of Wentz St, this bridge has a recorded construction date of 1950.

Above, looking west. The bridge has steel stringer approaches at each end.

Below, a view through the brush of the side. The paint seems to be at most 10 years old. Note the chunks of broken concrete on the far bank, which may be from an earlier structure. Also not that this span does not use a bearing, but a bearing pad riveted directly to the end gusset plate.

Above, a close-up of the truss. All the web members are made of laced angles.

Below, another general view through the bridge. The remarkably good condition of this bridge should insure it stands for awhile.
