Oklahoma may lack a substantial population of bridges found in greater populations in other states such as 19th Century metal truss bridges, or concrete arch bridges. However, two categories of 20th Century metal truss bridges are unique to Oklahoma: The state's unique K-Parker through truss bridges, and the state's unique long-length multi-span pony truss bridges. Populations of both are dropping due to demolition, but several noteworthy examples of each remain. Oklahoma is home to the Route 66 Bridgeport Bridge, a multi-span pony truss bridge featuring 38 spans, believed to be the longest pony truss bridge in the entire country! HistoricBridges.org offers coverage of this state that, while not comprehensive, is intended to showcase the general character and variety of bridge types in the state, particularly those unique to the state.
