This bridge is being replaced. The road is closed with no defined detour in place.

Posted July 8, 2017

But not very much time. I spoke with a nearby landowner and MoDot removed it because it was "unsafe". Now it is a horrible low water crossing.

04-04-16: This bridge is gone from google imagery

Posted April 4, 2016

i still see this bridge in google imagery and it is still in the nbi as of 2015. can you confirm its gone?

Posted February 26, 2016

checked out the area myself a couple days ago since I am through this area alot now. Its definitely an old railroad alignment yet the bridge has apparently been used for motor vehicles pretty recently. Possibly county vehicles but it has definitely seen use recently. no builder plaque or any other information from the structure itself.

by comparing street views around the city of jackson and searching nbi information, Ive concluded that this is not Broadway, it is Harding and it is in the process of being replaced, according to recent satellite imagery.

I see old bridges set up near fields like this all the time. My guess would be that farmers buy these bridges when they are being replaced and place them as crossings for farm equipment. I mean, I cant imagine an old road alignment ever going through there. Thoughts?

Posted October 11, 2015

there are two postings for this bridge, both using the same photo

Posted October 10, 2015

Both this and Lake Barkely bridges will be replaced with a white, basket - shaped, tied arch bridge according to the demolition website. The replacement for eggners ferry is already onsite.

This bridge has recently had its inspection report blocked from public view by both the Iowa and Illinois DOT's citing security concerns, I heard something about hairline cracks and mentions of the bridge collapse in Minnesota so I'd avoid this bridge for awhile, especially since lane closures has traffic backed up in both directions frequently.

if he saved it and has future intentions than it doesn't need an abandoned status

Posted September 1, 2015

currently in construction and scheduled to be completed November 2015 at an estimated cost of $5.8 million
