Lost Creek bridge, Payne County

With a date of 1989, this is one of the "newest" bridges here. Actually, the bridge was moved here form another location in 1989.

Above, looking west, this 100-foot long Parker pony span stands on Kirk St., just east of Perkins. Below, a good side view of the truss. The 5-panel Parker pony truss was one of the best-designed bridges ever to be built in Oklahoma, being adaptable to many settings. The use of wide-flange section for the web members would indicate this bridge was originally built in the mid-1930's or later.

Above, in this photograph, we can see the connection between the floorbeams and the truss. It is very likely that the bridge was disassembled where the bolts are when it was moved. Below, one last view of this versatile bridge.
