OK 7 Beaver Creek, Comanche County

Built in 1937 by E. E. Barber & Co., this bridge consists of two 100-foot long Parker pony truss spans and steel stringer approaches giving a total length of 306 feet. The bridge stands just east of Pumpkin Center between Lawton and Duncan.

Above, a view thru the bridge. As you can see, the bridge has been redecked, and features a new-style monolithic concrete barrier railing on all spans.

Below, a side view of one of the truss spans. These are the venerable state-standard Parker pony truss, a type used throughout Oklahoma in the truss era.
