Built in the late 1930's, this 160 foot long K-truss spans the Deep Fork River near Welty. The bridge is about 1/4 mile south of the Cree-Okfuskee County line.
Below, a view along the side of the bridge. Most of the steel work in the truss span was found to be in good condition. The approach spans were a little worse off, but still workable.
Below, the portal and bridge deck. Like many bridges on highways, this one has seen plenty of tall vehicle collisions.
