This bridge is scheduled for repair. I have heard some news about this, but now we have a detailed article.
Reading the comments from Mr. McMahon, from the county commission, it is clear that there is a strong commitment to HB preservation in this area.

I noticed that there is already a category for the Osage River in Missouri. As locals know, this is the same river as the Marais des Cygnes.
I have created a category for bridges over the Marais des Cygnes River upstream from its confluence with the Little Osage where the name change takes place.
Both categories now have an explanation and a link to the other category.
James, et. al:
Given the large number of historic bridges over the Marais des Cygnes River in Kansas, it would seem appropriate for me to create a category for this river. But, this situation is a bit complicated.
1. This river is known as the Osage River in Missouri.
2. The name change does not take effect at the state line, but rather at the confluence between this river and the Little Osage River.
So, should we combine bridges over the Marais des Cygnes (both in Kansas and Missouri) with the Osage River bridges, or should we make another category called "Marais des Cygnes River for bridges over this river in both Kansas and Missouri?
