It was also called the Westview Bridge by locals.

The old concrete arch bridge at White branch below warsaw on South 65 hwy. The new steel bridge stands to the west which is now in use. Old 65 hwy still exists beyond. You have to go just south to exist to drive on "old 65 hwy".

My parents lived at Racket Missouri. I still go back to Racket and Warsaw. Like Route 66, old parts of old Hwy 65 are still there just east of Warsaw.

I believe this old bridge was exploded / dynamited into the Osage river.
