The new alignment may have been built in 1953.
Written by Gene McCluney
There are several remnants of a previous alignment of OK 2 in Haskell County. This particular bridge is visible from current alignment of OK 2 but is quite far off the current path. No road leads to it, and it is private property on all sides with fences. It spans a cut for a railroad track, which is long gone.
