These four photographs show the weathered old veteran that carries OK 99 across Hominy Creek. Built in 1936 by W. R. Johnston, the structure features approaches with the characteristic concrete "fence" railings, and a 24-foot wide deck. The truss span is a 7-panel riveted through K-truss 140 feet long. Total length with approaches is 225 feet. If the portals look weird that's because they have been replaced. In fact, a good portion of the original laced and riveted upper lateral system has been replaced with the welded tie plate sections you see in the portals.
