I've loved History for as long as I can remember. It all started with WW-II aircraft, when I went to Airshow's with my Dad. I was lucky to be able to cross Historic Bridges, in the Lake of the Ozarks region of Missouri, when I was a kid. Discovering this website has been a true gift. I am able to visit locations, and document Historical Artifacts.

As of 11/11/2018 bridge is closed. There is a large snag of logs on the West side of the bridge. I didn't venture out onto the bridge to see if it was damaged or not.

I ventured out to this bridge today. It's in pretty decent condition. I want to return in the Fall, so I can get some Wide Shots and not have to worry about snakes.

Posted February 2, 2018

The Westbound lanes have been closed as of today, 2/2/2018 for a 2.5 year projected project length.

My wife and I went to this bridge today 1/21/18. Several of the deck boards are rotting, and will need to be replaced soon.

I came across this photo in a Facebook group. I have no idea who first published the photo (it appears to be in a book).

My wife and I happened upon this little jewel today. The name of the road has changed to "Horizon Trl", but it still has the 318 road signs, the road also has new gravel. The deck of the bridge appears to be in great shape, as it was probably replaced in the past couple of years, or so. It's nice to see that the plaque is still intact.

Posted December 24, 2017

I just learned this bridge is scheduled for replacement.

Went to this bridge today, and it is closed. I'm not sure if it's a temporary closure, or not.

This bridge is also called the "Rainbow Bridge", by the locals. It is illuminated at night.

Visited this bridge today. It appears to still be in very good condition.
