Chikaskia River Bridge
Posted June 7, 2009, by Wes Kinsler (wkinsler [at] wkinsler [dot] com)

I have recently heard disturbing news that this bridge is going to be closed. This is the only non-railroad through bridge possibly ever built in Oklahoma that is skewed. It was built in 1923-1924 by the Vincennes Bridge Co.
