Clayton Road Deer Creek Bridge
Posted September 4, 2010, by tom (townandcountrycorp [at] yahoo [dot] com)

So in 1937 U.S. Highway 40 WAS BUILT OVER THIS BRIDGE, and a spur of the Missouri Pacific Railroad called the Laclede and Creve Couer Lake Line crossed Clayton Road just east of this bridge, and crossed U.S. highway 40 , an early divided highway, AT GRADE, but in 1960 the railroad track was rerouted at a cost of 1 million dollars , an incredible amount of money then, to eliminate the grade crossing on U.S. 40, so the railroad went under 40 at the Clayton Warson overpass then-and right next to this Deer Creek Bridge. in 1968 they de-commissioned the tracks at this point, and the tracks ended at McKnight/Rock Hill Road near Tilles Park at that time
