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

This bridge is now open to traffic. As someone who has an vested interest in Oklahoma bridges I can appreciate the fact that some of these old spans are recycled. I have been a Certified Bridge Inspector in Oklahoma for 15 years. This particular truss was cut in half TOP TO BOTTOM to facilitate the move( >12 miles) then welded back together.
