Old OK 33 Flint Creek, Delaware County

Built in 1930, this three-span Parker pony truss structure is a virtual twin with a similar bridge in Kiowa County built only a year later.

Above, a view through the structure. When Highway 33 ran through here, it was never paved. In fact, portions of this road are labeled "Old 33 Dirt Highway."

Below, a view alongside. Each of the three spans is a state-standard design, and one of the most popular ones too.

Above, a deck view of the trusses. Below, a side view of a span.

Above, a Tennessee Steel mark on the upper chord. All steel that was marked was Tennessee Steel.

Below, a final view. This bridge and the alignment it stands on are an interesting "time capsule" of what most highways once were like.
