Bridge was damaged in a derailment on 6/25/11. From STLTODAY.COM: "Shrewsbury Police Lt. Brian Catlett said railroad officials told him that one car was off the tracks before the train left the yard. The train proceeded about three-quarters of a mile before that car struck a wooden walkway that runs beside the track over the bridge. One car derailed. By noon Sunday, the train was gone and the car had been removed. A few hours later, heavy equipment arrived to remove the damaged walkway and other debris dangling from the bridge deck. The 7200 block of Landsdowne remained closed to traffic until that work was completed about 5 p.m."
This bridge was built in 1925 and is on the BNSF Railroad. The date stamp is on one of the bridge's concrete piers.
