Coon Creek Bridge on Osage County Road 3011 near the Washington County line was recently closed to traffic after inspecting engineers determined it to be approximately three inches “out of plumb,” said District One Commissioner Bob Jackson. The five-panel riveted Warren pony truss spans 72 feet and currently rests on cracked stone abutments. An attached plaque states that the structure was built in 1919 by Rochester Bridge Co. of Bartlesville. According to Jackson, this bridge and a Works Progress Administration-era one located nearby are to be replaced by a new bridge that will be constructed approximately 150 yards to the west. Right-of-way acquisition already has been completed for the road realignment/bridge replacement project, which will get 80 percent of its financing from an Osage Nation grant received through the Indian Reservation Roads program, he added.
