Two Mile Creek Bridge

Photos 

Deck view

This bridge is located on a high-speed stretch of North Lindbergh Boulevard, accessible via U-turn ramps on either side. MoDOT removed the stone balustrades that once graced this bridge during the 1977 rehabilitation, and replaced them with ordinary concrete and steel guardrails which now makes it rather mundane-looking. But at least they left intact the stone-cladded arch span (see third photo).

Two Mile Creek drains into Deer Creek.

Two Mile Creek Bridge
Posted March 30, 2010, by Mark Dellbringge (markdellbringge [at] netzero [dot] net)

The street view you have pictured is the bridge over Deer Creek.

The Twomile Creek bridge is on the long 55 MPH stretch of Lindbergh Blvd. south of Highway 40 and north of Manchester Road. There is a U-Turn Ramp at opposite ends of the bridge.
