Hillers Creek Old US 54 Bridge - update
Posted July 10, 2015, by Shaun Speers (speersfms [at] hotmail [dot] com)

Unfortunately nobody made a bid to relocate the Hillers Creek bridge, so it was torn down as part of new construction. The old bridge plaque was saved and donated to the Callaway County Historical Society. New bridge construction is underway and is expted to be completed early this fall.
