Truman Road Abandoned Overpass
Posted December 6, 2012, by Kelly McClanahan (KMCCLA [at] aol [dot] com)

My father worked for MoDot for 40 years. He has said that they (MoDot, or least the local District Office) have wanted to tear it down for years, but the Bridge Department (also MoDot) will not let them. Part of the reason it never was used because it was going to be a left hand entrance onto the highway.
