North Canadian River Bridge
Posted August 13, 2008, by Karl Zimmerman (karl [dot] zimmerman [at] valpo [dot] edu)

If this is where Eastern/MLK crosses the Oklahoma River (formerly North Canadian), this bridge was replaced with the usual concrete and steel post and beam bridge about 20 years ago. I (barely) remember seeing the original pony truss when I was little. There are now no trusses in that immediate area.
