In particular, I was wondering if anyone had knowledge of so-called "Gravity Hill" or "The Crying Bridge" on the outskirts of Bartlesville.

i had a great laugh at all those different "cry baby" bridges and "gravity hills"... lol! ;D
on a serious note, i've investigated one location where one of the gravity hills is supposed to be outside bartlesville, ok ... which is strangely near railroad tracks and a rural supposed "cry baby" bridge. a little research netted some other surprising and shameful info about that area...
long-time residents claim that the area of which i speak was actually the site of more than one grisly lynchings perpetrated by racist residents in the 1920's. rumor has it that the ghosts of the murdered men and women wander the woods and farms that surround this secluded, almost dead-end road.
i've investigated the bridge, the hill, the railroad tracks, and the length of the road and i've felt a presence there, but i'm not sure it's a mom and baby hanging out at the bridge!

The legend is that someone had broken down and was pushing a car out of the road and was hit and killed by another car, and now this ghost will push your car off the road to safety. Sounds familiar doesnt it.
I went to this place near the town of Livingston, Louisiana today. I found where the exact area was located. I stopped my truck and sure enough when I put it in neutral it started rolling forward on its own.
I got out and looked around and the roadway appeared to be very level. I took two gallon jugs of water and walked back to the area where I started and slowly poured the water on the road (asphalt surface). The water trickled down the road and pooled near my truck. I then stretched a string from before the area where the water was poured, (I fastened the string with a nail driven into the road) I pulled it tight near the bumper of my truck and attatched a string level to it to estimate the grade. I found that the area where my truck was parked at that moment was actually 27" lower than where it started. I rolled for approximately 72'.
The road actually has a down hill grade that is not visible to the naked eye. At least I can rest assured that this case is solved for now. And I forgot to mention that it was also reported that you would see hand prints in the dust on your vehicle, I found none and believe me my truck was very dusty.
