Maynard Bayou Bridge, Muskogee County

This 150-foot early-style state standard Pratt through truss was put here in 1930. Given the pin-connected design, it was probably built new at another location.

Above, and below, two general views of this massively built bridge. The span features a concrete deck and stands on concrete substructures. It is 8-panels long and is heavily built.

Above, the Inland Steel mark on the portal, and below, an Illinois 'G' Steel mark on a built-up member.

Above, detail of sway bracing and portal frame.  The bridge has a wonderful weathered paint patina that looks very good. Below, a detail view of lower chord connections. The lower chord in  the end panels is laced channel, paired eyebars in the others.

Above and below, views through the bridge. Although this bridge is heavily built, stands on a residential road, and still carries a respectable 8 ton limit, a replacement concrete bridge is well underway along side which we generally tried to hide in the photos presented here. We hope this fine example of bridge construction is left to stand in place afterwards.
