County of bridge: Franklin County
Location of bridge: Labadie Bottom Rd. & Fiddle Creek, Labadie
Bridge built: 1920
Abandoned after 1993
The 1993 flood, one of the worst in all of history on either the Missouri River or the Mississippi River, caused this creek to flood and as result flooded the entire bottom land, and even the nearby power plant.
Because of this flood, a levees were repaired along the Missouri River, and new levees were built along Fiddle Creek and Tavern Creek.
The levee along Fiddle Creek caused the Labadie Bottom Road to be re-routed, and thus causing the abandonment of this bridge.
The floods of 2012 and 2015 caused the bridge to be, first severely damaged, than collapsing.
The bridge is still there, you can go all the way to highway T if you jump over that rope.
