Notes
Survey number HAER OK-5
Building/structure dates: 1909 initial construction

Significance: The Hominy Creek bridge is a relatively well preserved and unmodified combination Pratt High and Pratt Pony steel truss erected by the Missouri Valley Bridge and Iron Company of Leavenworth, Kansas. There are relatively few combination bridges like this surviving on the county road system in Oklahoma, and its 1909 construction date is relatively early for Oklahoma.
