Sorry I guess I forgot to post this information, but Scott Sundermeyer at ODOT gave me some good news about this bridge as follows:

The bridge is being adopted by a private citizen, Scot Underwood. The bridge is scheduled to be moved to a location just off SH-11and 136th Street in Skiatook. Google Earth image attached. The work to remove the bridge will take place sometime near Thanksgiving.

Well that is a shame. These K-Parker trusses are very rare outside of Oklahoma. Thus, they all have National significance As far as I am concerned.

Granted, these are not the oldest trusses in the United States, but that does not degrade their significance. These K-Parker trusses illustrate a type of experimentation that occurred in the latter half of the truss era. They are significant right along with pre 1900 pin connected trusses but for a different reason.
