This bridge is the former Easton road bridge that was used for vehicle traffic over the Platte River that ran parallel to the railroad bridge that has been rehabilitated by the Herzog company approximately 1/4 mile upstream. Because of the historical significance it was moved over blacksnake creek at the Missouri River, its current location ca. 1991 and rehabilitated for pedestrian traffic along the river walk trail.
