Small trusses on freeways

(1/4) > >>

bugo:
I'm talking about small and mid-sized truss bridges, not the great river crossing type of bridge.  The only ones that I know of are the twin bridges on US 169 between Owasso and Tulsa, OK.   Are there any more?

Here is a link to a picture of the bridges:

I-5 has, north of Seattle, a truss bridge on one carriageway, which is the original US-99 bridge.  The other carriageway is a more modern bridge.

bugo:
Are there any pony trusses on freeways anywhere?  I know there used to be one on US 40/61 near Wentzville, Missouri, but I don't think that stretch was a freeway when it was still there.

This is the only one I'm aware of in California -- the westbound CA 120-to-southbound I-5 transition ramp near Manteca, California:

There is also a similar bridge just to the west that serves as a frontage road.  As the linked-to bridge above dates from 1949 (according to the Caltrans bridge logs -- http://www.dot.ca.gov/hq/structur/strmaint/brlog/logpdf/logd10.pdf), I suspect this bridge once carried US 50.

There are a few truss bridges along the Washington Interstate system.
