The disputed date on this bridge is probably due to the fact that in 1980 when ALL off-system bridges were first inspected under NBIS guidelines. If a date or records weren't found to confirm the age of the bridge an arbitrary number of 1950 was used. If you looked at the number of bridges in Oklahoma with "date built = 1950" you see that GOBS of bridges were built then lol. The guess at 1920 is much closer IMHO.
- Pony truss bridge over Stillwater Creek on N3290 in Stillwater
- Stillwater, Payne County, Oklahoma
- Open to traffic
- Built ca. 1950, probably "moved" here in 1950, as this has the characteristics of a pre-1920 bridge, and Oklahoma did not build bridges like this in the 1940's or 1950's.
