WPA Bridge – Guthrie OK

Description

“This is one of the non-descript WPA-constructed bridges throughout Oklahoma that are a surprise to find.

Driving north on Broadway from Edmond, you cross Waterloo Road which is the boundary between Oklahoma and Logan Counties…

On the southeast side of the bridge, a vertical, three foot high concrete slab is marked “WPA / 1939″. It stands on a stone wall which is part of the retainment structure of the bridge. A sign shows that the bridge capacity is 16 tons. There is no sign of deterioration and this is an example of the incredible work done by relatively unskilled workers under the WPA program in the 1930s.”   (http://www.waymarking.com)
