Manhattan Road and Bridge Co. – based out of Tulsa – attempted to move a crane across the 5th Street bridge as they constructed the new Highway 33 bridge and roadway, but came to a halt on the north side as it sunk into the bridge. Once the crane was removed it left an obvious indention of approximately 40 feet long. Related article: Council approves 5th Street bridge repairs
The bridge was built in the mid 1960’s.
