The old bridge has been replaced. This road has been repurposed as a new frontage old.

Bridge is now being used again as part of new outer road for US 63. Bridge is scheduled for replacement in 2016.

Dunno if anyone else has seen the plans for the airport overpass (MO H at US 63), but it includes reusing this bridge as part of a new outer road, connecting this to the current US63 that will also be part of the outer road. I can't find anything saying this bridge will be replaced, so it seems it will remain in use for the time being, and with plenty of traffic in a year or two once the project is done.
