Locust Fork Warrior River Bridge
This is not an extremely historic bridge; it is a fairly modern highway bridge to be honest. However, it passes the 50-year threshold, and it appears to be a haunched deck plate girder bridge, which is sometimes worth adding when old or interesting. The piers also look older than the current bridge and may date back to an earlier bridge, probably a truss of some sort. This may explain the odd deck girder arrangement, trying to fit the piers.
