OK 5A West Cache Creek, Cotton County

Built in 1958, and standing basically unaltered since, this bridge consists of a 100-foot riveted Parker pony truss and two approaches. The total length of the bridge is 203 feet. Above, a view looking through the bridge. Notice the wide curbs and low, wide steel railing on the approaches. These are tale-tell features of the late 50's-early 60's bridges.

Below, a side view of the bridge. We are pleased that the paint looks so recent.

Above, a detail view of the truss.

Below, a view of the truss from the deck. This bridge is still in excellent condition and is an excellent example of what the last truss bridges built new in Oklahoma looked like. The last new highway truss bridges in Oklahoma would be built just a few years after this one was completed.
