Route 66 Bridge at Catoosa

The twin spans of the "Bird Creek Bridge" on Route 66 near Catoosa, Oklahoma, are no more.

Shortly after this photo was taken in October 2008, the westbound lane of the bridge was condemned and demolished.

With half the historic structure replaced by a simple concrete bridge in 2011, the Oklahoma Department of Transportation plans to scrap the remaining eastbound lane by 2015.

Attempting to appease history buffs, the state used the steel pony trusses along entries to nearby Rogers Point Public Park and Molly's Landing restaurant.

It's not the same.
