1st visit today to this one, not sure how missed it in the past, with River down full concrete tower visible, really neat monolith, approached from public 351st Rd west side, east side approach getting stink-eye from neighbors who didn't wish to talk....bottom chords on furthest west span have amazingly been torched off most likely for someone's farm project or whatever, seen a lot of this - a shame, this bridge is very cool and straight

I bet there was a lot of pesky mosquitoes around when the warm weather shots were taken. I got ate up when I took a hidden abandoned truss a few years back.

This is the same bridge as the Marais des Cygnes River Bridge BH 41061.
