Little River Bridge, Hughes County

Built in 1958, this massive Parker-K-truss is 210 feet long and together with a steel stringer approach span at the north end is 264 feet in length. Above, looking south, below, a close-up looking north. As you can see, the south portal strut has been hit by tall vehicles.

Above, a side view of the truss. Below, this detail view behind the portal shows some of the reinforcing on the endposts.

Above, detail of the trusses and sway bracing. Below, a final view through the span. This is an interesting example of a late era county road truss bridge with its 18 foot wide deck and heavy construction.
