Old US 81 Osage Creek, Grant Co.

Built in 1926,  this 80-foot Parker pony truss and approaches stands on the old alignment of US 81 near Jefferson.

Above, looking north through the bridge, we can see that it stands basically unaltered in good condition. Total length of the bridge, with approaches, is 155 feet.

Above, close-up of concrete rails on one of the approaches. Note that instead of recessed panels, tooled grooves imply panels.
