Lake Overholser Bridge along Route 66 in Oklahoma City closed for inspection, evaluation and maintenance

Post Date:09/19/2019 3:22 PM

The Lake Overholser Bridge on NW 39th Street along historic Route 66 is closed for inspection and potential maintenance work.

Engineers performing a routine inspection Tuesday found some concerns requiring further investigation. The steel truss bridge, which opened in 1925, was restored in 2011 to accommodate pedestrians, cyclists and light vehicles.

The Public Works Department is working with the City’s on-call bridge engineer to inspect and evaluate concerns observed. A timeline for the closure and maintenance will be available when the inspection is complete.

Vehicle barriers are in place at both ends of the bridge.
