I put on my pencil-thin moustache to do some investigating on this, the Jackson County road and bridges yard is at
Road & Bridge Maintenance
Environmental Health Division
34900 E. Old U.S. 40 Highway
Oak Grove, MO 64075
Not sure if that's the "quarry" yard where the bridge was supposed to be stored or not.
May still exist in storage:
I can't chase this down now. Is someone in a position to do so?
It is with much sadness that I must convey that this bridge has been destroyed. Driving Hunt Road on 2020-01-08 I saw a replacement UCEB.
If the bridge is truly 16 feet in length as listed here, the reason its not in the NBI is because as I understand it, only bridges over 20 feet are listed in the NBI.
For some reason, this bridge does not seem to be listed on the NBI database, it is fascinating for it's small size, the truss only stand about 30 inches above the road deck, and to be skewed at that small size is also a rarity. A real gem to find something so unusual.
