OK 51 Grand River, Wagoner County

Fort Gibson Lake Bridge

Located in scenic northeastern Oklahoma, this bridge of 5 K-Parkers spans across the lake east of the city of Wagoner, linking it via OK 51 to Tahlequah.

The above photo was shot looking west into Wagoner County. In the foreground you can see a single 60-foot pony approach span. The other five spans are 210-foot long K-Parker hybrid types. Records give a date of 1949 for the construction of this bridge. Driving lanes on this bridge are 12 feet wide.

The photo below shows the bridge and its eastern approach causeway from the Taylor Ferry swimming area.

Below, this side view shows the familiar standard design pony truss, though here, it was constructed much shorter than usual.
