Excellent. We look forward to seeing the photos. Missouri has definitely lost some nice bridges in the last couple decades.

You should probably come out and see this bridge soon, all the other bridges have been being torn down and replaced I am going to go out Monday and see it on 01/02/17 and take a more close look at the span, and upload the photos from the trip.
