Little Cabin Creek Bridge

Route 66, Vinita, OK

East < GO > West

The Little Cabin Creek Bridge just east of Vinita is a Camelback Pony Truss structure. It is closed to traffic because of frequent flooding, but a new bridge was completed in 2011 right next it. It is located on Route 66 (US 60/US69) just east of Vinita. The old bridge has a total length of 388 feet with a deck width of 24 feet. The longest total span was a bit more than 95 feet.

x The Oklahoma Historic Bridge Survey reports it being built 1934 -1935 and the contractors as Nims & Frost. This is an area where the Little Cabin Pecan Company has a number of groves. The bridge was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 2009.
