State Offers To Give Away Jefferson Co. Bridge Over Red River

Posted:

JEFFERSON COUNTY, OK -- One way or another, the state of Oklahoma says a 75-year-old bridge over the Red River is on its way out.

The Highway 79 bridge which crosses the river near Waurika is more than 2,000 feet long with 21 spans.

Department of Transportation officials say they'll give it away for free to anyone willing to haul it away and maintain it somewhere else. Otherwise, the bridge will be demolished.
