It is an Oklahoma Highway Commission standard-design bridge.

Was this once a railroad bridge? It is wide enough for 2 cars to squeeze through but the heavy construction and late construction date indicate that it could easily be a former rail bridge. The only thing that makes me think that it wasn't a rail bridge is the width of the bridge. This bridge is in very good shape and is sturdy, as a car crossed the bridge while I was standing on it and the bridge didn't budge or shake or anything. Neat bridge. Well worth the drive if you are traveling US 412 between Tulsa and Inola. Take OK highway 412P south and go straight when OK 412P turns to the left (east). You can't miss it.
