Little Creek Route JJ Bridge

Map 

Description 

The bridge was originally constructed in 1923 on Route 7 (later highway 63) over Hog Creek in Texas County (as bridge No. G 411). The bridge was constructed as part of project 7-84 by the Missouri Bridge & Iron Company. It was removed in 1956 when the bride was widened and stored until 1956 when the truss was relocated to Ozark County. The contractor for the 1956 relocation was O. L. Koch of Thayer, Missouri.
