Bell Cow Creek Crossing, Lincoln County

This page features a very interesting pin-connected Pratt pony truss built in 1902. The bridge is 60 feet in length and features floor beams above the lower chord, and wooden stringers. The bridge is located south of Chandler. This bridge is the oldest in Lincoln County.
