Bridge Documentation

This bridge is an excellent and increasingly rare surviving example of a signature Oklahoma K-Parker truss bridge. The design was a standard in Oklahoma, but nationwide, K-truss designs are one of the rarest truss designs to be found.

This bridge was slated for replacement, but the effort to find a third party to take ownership of this bridge and relocate it to a new location was successful. The photos on this website were taken prior to relocation. At the end of 2017, the bridge made its move. Today, the bridge has moved about three miles due south onto private property, although the bridge should remain visible to the public as the new location is close to the public highway. Of note, the bridge was moved intact, which is an impressive feat because all overhead utilities in the way had to be moved out of the way to move this enormous bridge down the road. It is more common for bridges of this size to be dismantled and shipped by truck for this reason. The fact that it moved due south on a straight road may have helped make moving this bridge intact more feasible.
