Given a choice between the two, I'll take a MOB over a UCEB just because there's some semblance of an aesthetic.

But what do I know?

Just delete it yourself. If you posted it, you can delete it.

Judge gives 90 days to save Clarendon Bridge

Posted March 4, 2018

The destroyed bridge was a truss, but its replacement isn't, so this should be 2 separate entries. One for the bridge that was destroyed by a tornado, another entry for the replacement, plus a third entry for the ferry AHTD ran while the new bridge was being built.

I visited this bridge on 2-27-18. Based on the level of completion on the new bridge, I'm guessing this one will survive one more Summer

Posted February 27, 2018

This bridge is just north of several bridge replacements along US 63. It does not appear to be endangered at this time.

MOB
Posted February 23, 2018

MOB = mail-order bridge - IE an ugly prefabricated Bridge

Not always ugly. Some MOB's resemble old pony truss bridges. Maybe not as attractive as an original, but still a darn sight better than a pre-fabricated piece of concrete.

Workinbridges is no longer involved in the Gasconade River project.

Posted February 12, 2018

Bridge has been closed due to flood damage to one of the timber columns

Posted February 9, 2018

Bridge is open with 3 Ton Weight Limit and 8 foot vertical clearance.

Posted February 8, 2018

Bridge is closed to the public behind a locked gate. Possibly a privately-owned hunting area?

Posted February 7, 2018

Workin' Bridges has withdrawn from this project.

Posted January 29, 2018

I visited this on 27 January and work has yet to begin on its replacement. Only thing I saw were some survey markers.
