I think this bridge was still in use as late as 1985 or 86; I remember crossing it on a trip from Lincoln, Nebraska to St. Louis, Missouri during a vacation in this period. We did the drive in reverse a year or so later and by then the new one had opened.
Thank you for show photo of railroad bridge over Missouri River. It is two truss bridges like in 1888. It is make George S Morison. I remember four truss bridge over Missouri River in Sioux City, Iowa. It was built in 1888. It was lost since 1973. i have no time take picture at Sioux City, Iowa. it was too late.
The highway span looks simular to the recently demolished Hermann Bridge. I wonder if this bridge was designed and built by the same company as the Hermann span. PLUS I am sure a UCEB or a steel stringer span exists there today. Is the old railroad bridge still standing?
