Bridge is now only accessible from the west. The road on the east is closed and returned to nature.

This bridge you call the Turkey Knob Bridge is a bridge that I have always know as the Orleans Bridge. Since it is at the site of the town of Orleans,Mo. which is know longer there. The only thing that is lift of Orleans is the school house at the top of the hill to the east of the bridge.
