Deep Fork River crossing, Creek County

Moved to this location in 1925, this bridge represents a typical turn-of-the-century bridge built in an eastern fashion.

Hopefully time will afford us the opportunity to get some better pictures of this unique structure in better light. This bridge is located a few miles southeast of Gypsy in southwestern Creek County. It is pin connected, and 100 feet in length. The overall length of the bridge is 309 feet.

Note the the vertical tension rods in the end panels.

Below, a connection detail. A U-bolt attaches the floor beams to the pins, a very popular method of making such a connection in the late 19th century.
