Description 

The Missouri/ Union Pacific railroads used this bridge until the mid-to-late 1990's when the tracks were torn up. In the late 1990's to very early 2000's, the old right-of-way was converted into Grant's trail. Between 2008-2010, this bridge was repainted from old, rusted steel to green, stating "Great Rivers Greenway, Grant's Trail".
