Bridge just sits on land.
The bridge is located on the grounds of the Rockin’ the Rivers, a 140-acre site that annually hosts a three-day rock festival. Locals call the arena “The Bridge” due to the span from the Sappington Bridge that was relocated to this site. According to a local source, the span was moved here with the intention of using it as a concert stage but that did not happen. It remains on site but not in use.

- Bridge according to 2000 NBI used to carry US 287 over the Jefferson River until the new bridge replaced it in 2001. Perhaps it was relocated to its current location to be used in the future for some other purpose.
