The Pony Bridge is currently closed to traffic for extensive maintenance. Re-opening is estimated to be late 2024.
Although its official name is William H. Murray Bridge, this distinct landmark spanning the South Canadian River has long been known as Pony Bridge for its pony trusses, which are bridge trusses that don’t connect at the top. Named on the National Register of Historic Places, the longest bridge on Oklahoma's stretch of Route 66 spans 3,944 feet with 38 trusses. On your next Mother Road adventure, be sure to stop here for a picture-worthy moment on the same bridge that made an appearance on the 1939 film “The Grapes of Wrath.”
