This bridge, like the abandoned James Creek Bridge, was one of two Milwaukee Bridge & Iron Works pony trusses in Jackson County. I do not know if there is/was any others.

Google Maps indicates that there is a UCEB here. This bridge is probably lost.

KSHS has a page for this bridge, which at the time appeared to be in danger of collapse. Hopefully it is extant.
