Eagle Chief Creek Crossing, Alfalfa County

Built in 1913, this 70-foot Warren pony span stands near Aline in the southwestern corner of the county. The riveted span is very simple in construction. All the web members are laced, the upper chords and endposts are rolled I's, and the lower chord is paired angles with tie plates. Above, looking west through the span.
