OKLAHOMA CITY – Residents in Oklahoma are able to start off the New Year with a new bridge.

Three historic Oklahoma bridges are available for adoption as part of the state’s Cultural Resources Program.

The bridges will be given at no cost to anyone willing to relocate the structures and maintain them.

They include the following:

·        A 1939 camelback pony truss bridge on SH-79 at the Red River in Jefferson County, measuring 2,255 feet in length with 21 spans.
·        A 1940 K-through-truss bridge on SH-11 at Hominy Creek in Tulsa County, measuring 405 feet in length with five spans.
·        A 1952 Warren Deck truss bridge on SH-10 at Spring River in Ottawa County, measuring 630 feet in length with six spans.

If the structures are not adopted, they will be torn down to make way for new bridges.
