The Slate Creek Bridge is a riveted steel Parker pony truss bridge spanning the Blue River 9 miles (14.5 km) north of Silverthorne, Colorado. It is named after the road it carries, Slate Creek Road. The bridge was rehabilitated in 1951. This rare example of an uncommon truss type was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1985.[1]
