OK 1/US270 Coal Creek Bridge, Pittsburg County

This 140-foot K-truss and approaches was built in 1936. The bridge is very typical of K-truss bridges in Oklahoma. This bridge stands just east of McAlister.

As you can see in the above photo, the concrete work on the approach spans has been redone to give the bridge a more modern look. The original guards would have been of the familiar fence design.

Below, another view. Note the 6-panel portal frame, and the number of sway struts that have been beat up by tall vehicles.

Below, a close view through the bridge, showing more clearly the abuse this bridge has weathered against.
