Lost Creek Bridge
Posted December 17, 2009, by Gary Hines (ghines [at] odot [dot] org)

I worked for Payne County District #3 from May,1989 thru Dec,2004. This bridge is one of 3 truss bridges that Payne County built in 1989-1992. Originaly, the bridges were all a part of a single location on SH 48 near Holdenville over the North Canadian River. The other two locations are: the Cottonwood Creek bridge on E0730 & the North Stillwater Creek bridge on McElroy Road (E0610. A small company out of Meeker (Diamond Valley Bridge - IIRC) erected the bridge(s). The truss was in pieces; the left & right trusses were complete & the floorbeams & stringers were separate. County forces (myself included) laid out the deck framework & tied the reinforcing steel after the truss was assembled. A private company was contracted to actually pour the deck.
