Bridge was torn down roughly in Feb or March 2008.

MoDOT announced on 28 January, 2008 this bridge will be torn down to make way for a new bridge along 2 new southbound lanes of US 65.

I visited this bridge on 30 September 2007. There are survey markers in the vicinity which seem to indicate the bridge will eventually be removed to make way for a new 4-Lane US 65.
