BNSF Railroad Bridge
Written by Gary Hines
This is one of 3 or 4 bridges of this type in Woodward County. All appear to have been built by or with Railroad Personel - some even have 'date nails' still present. This particular bridge is unique in the fact the main span is a truss/floorbeam style of construction WITHOUT stringers. The deck is actually concrete SLABS that span from floorbeam to floorbeam! The timber deck planks on the approach spans is two layers thick - the top layer is laid out on a 45 degree skew!
