Lower Greenville Bridge
Lower Greenville Bridge (right) built by Stupp Bros. in 1911
The Lower Greenville Bridge - on the road between Greenville and Poplar Bluff - was built by the Stupp Bros. Bridge & Iron Co. of St. Louis in 1911. As illustrated in this 1930 photo - it was replaced by widening the abandoned railroad bridge located just downstream.

The main span of the Lower Greenville Bridge seems to have been similar - if not identical - to the Wappapello Bridge build by Stupp Bros. for Wayne Co. 20 miles downstream.
