Briscoe Bridge, CR 337
Briscoe Bridge; Marion County, MO CR337; North River. This is a 2 shot 35mm film panoramic, physically 'stitched' together after processing. Notice the massive dent on the opening. This was due to having a big trunk of a massive oak falling on it in 2003.

Scenic location, easy to shoot bridge from several angles. Bridge was replaced shortly after the record Midwest Mississippi flood of 2008. The bridge was badly damaged by debris coming down the North River, so the Marion County Commissioners moved the replacement up. The bridge was closed by flooding and not reopened after water receeded. I have always understood locally the bridge was named Briscoe.
