This is a rare example of a bedstead pony truss bridge that was relocated and preserved for pedestrian use on the grounds of the Tulsa offices of the Oklahoma Department of Transportation. The interpretive signage does not state when and where this bridge came from exactly, but noted it was built in 1915 in Washington County. It is believed to have previously crossed Coon Creek on E0100 (coordinates 36.873062, -95.823497) as old inventories list a bridge of the same span length (50 feet) with the same 1915 construction date and show that bridge being replaced by a new bridge constructed in 2005.
