I located Tea Access (Southeast of Owensville, Mo), off of County Rte T, and Road 523. If you study the Satellite Imagery, you can follow the old road alignment of Rte T (from the South), to Tea Access.

I wonder if it is this bridge from this quote:

"About 3 miles downstream from Mint Springs is a low water bridge on Koenig Road. That's a nice family float.

About 7 miles downstream from Koenig is a rough access that used to be an old suspension bridge. "
