Coal Creek Bridge, Okmulgee Co.

Built in 1913 and recently closed, this riveted Warren bedstead stands east of Henryetta south of US 266.

Above, a view looking east.  The hole in the deck appears to be the result of a fire. Below, an angled view. As you can see, the endpost extend below the bridge and actually form part of the supporting substructure.

Above, a deck view of the truss. Below, detail of the connection between the endpost and upper chord.

Above, a typical upper chord joint. Note the type of bolt used for the filed connections-bolt heads shaped like rivets and square nuts.

Below, a close angle view. The fate of this bridge is uncertain, the road it is on doesn't really go anywhere.
