Rock Island over MO 52

Map 

Description 

Unknown type of bridge, but most likely similar to the one that crossed US 65. Terrain suggests there was a bridge, as does quadrangle map. Unknown when bridge was removed, but most likely in the early 90's. The entire Rock Island Line from Pleasant Hill to Union Missouri is now being turned into a rail trail.
