Bridge workers were pouring concrete on the three-span bridge over Bailey’s Run Creek at Tyrone in September, 1963. The concrete was brought to the site in mixer trucks like one at the left, dumped into a bucket and swung out where it was needed by the crane. The floor of the two-lane span was to be 24 feet wide and 206 feet long. Cost of the bridge was $142,861.20. Dirt-filled approaches to the bridge had been almost completed. The photograph was taken from the old iron bridge that served the Tyrone community since 1908 according to Mrs. J.V. Patterson, who lived in Tyrone.
