Brookfield MO 15 min 1948 shows a road crossing, continuing west to the section line, then north. The bridge may have been there for a while.

Trail and park descriptions refer to it as the Cambria Iron bridge, perhaps a clue to the steel markings.

This bridge seems to be located from elsewhere, any info?
