Built in 1935 by M. E. Gillioz, this 160-foot long K-truss bridge carries OK 99 across Pond Creek in northern Osage County. The above picture shows the longer approach and the original portal end of the bridge. The approaches have concrete "fence" rails with panel details in the uprights. The total length including approaches is 315 feet.
Below, a close shot of the repaired portal and the K-truss. This 8-panel long type of K-truss is a widely used design throughout the state. This bridge features a 24-foot wide deck with full-width 12-foot wide lanes.
Below, a closer view looking through the bridge and of the portal. These older bridges with lower clearances get a lot of abuse from tall vehicles.
