Long Description:
The Wanette–Byars Bridge is a long camelback truss bridge in central Oklahoma that crosses the Canadian River between Byars in McClain County and Wanette in Pottawatomie County. The bridge was built in 1902 by the American Bridge Company to serve as a rail bridge connecting Pauls Valley with Shawnee. It was later converted to a one-lane plank bridge for auto traffic. The wood surface of the auto bridge burned in 1992 and the bridge is now decked with concrete and asphalt. The three 265' spans of the bridge are the longest in Oklahoma! This bridge is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
Type: Plank Bridge
