Nut Junction Bridge
Posted July 19, 2012, by John Oechsner

For a bridge built in 1938, she not only looks in remarkable condition and well-kept, but has even received very positive remarks according to the inspections. Too bad all historic MO bridges can't be such a fine specimen as this one, huh? Then there'd be no need for any replacements! ;)
