Verdigris River Bridge

Map 

Description 

Through truss bridge built in the 1940's replacing an older 3-span through truss bridge. The centerline of the old bridge was 30 feet south of the centerline of the new bridge. The old bridge had a 16-foot wide roadway and three spans of different lengths: 110 feet, 155 feet, and 176 feet. The final disposition of these spans is unknown, though remarks on the plans state they were "to be taken down and stacked without damage to steel where and as directed by Resident Engineer." The new bridge was removed when the current US 412 was built because of the navigation channel. Information from General Plan sheet drawn Dec.1936, as-built checked Mar. 1940.
