Unnamed Creek Bridge, Beaver Co.

Built in 1947, this 60-foot standard design Pratt pony spans a small creek in western Beaver Co. near Boyd. This is the only pony truss bridge in the Oklahoma Panhandle, and the only truss bridge in Beaver County.

Above, a view looking north through the bridge. A stringer span makes up the southern portion of the bridge. Only the truss span has  a concrete deck & railings, the steel stringer span is decked in wood.

Below, a view slightly from the side. The north abutment and center pier are poured concrete. The south abutment is constructed of wood.

Above, a side view of the truss. Note the lattice railing is in good condition and does not not appear to ever have been hit.
