This bridge is part of the old Waterloo route....while the railroad ends just past the bridge, now used only for the plant on the other side, it use to continue on into Waterloo and STL.

As of April 2013, this railroad bridge is not out of service. The bridge is used by CN in order to get to the KRPD #2 loading facility and The Material Works. They usually offload coiled steel and there is an industrial engine at the facility.
