Confirmed bridge is gone, new UECB just opened, Nov 2016.
I have been told by a co-worker who lives nearby that Buckhorn Bridge is now gone; replaced by a UECB. Glad I visited earlier this spring. I hope someone can definitively confirm the status of the great old bridge.
There is a now a 4-Ton posted weight limit.
My wife & I visited Steinhagen Bridge Oct 25, 2016; I took some pics, and got a 36th Wedding Anniversary photo as well. Easy to get to, great photo op. Hoping to come back real soon to get some better shots. Only took 36 photos on a limited time schedule.
THX for sharing your info chrissy! It is appreciated.
Nice Find Nick! THX for your efforts & sharing a great old relic like this one.
THANX for the drone video. Awesome work Mark.
Nice work David. Happy Bridge Hunting!
In looking at the History Bridge Inventory it seems this bridge is named "Eagles Nest Bridge". I need to confirm this first & I will update name then. I was close by last Friday, but didn't have time to check in on it again. Last visit was probably 2007 'ish.
Good work John, thanx for sharing, sorry to hear you got stuck checking it out.
Anyone from Pike County know more background on this bridge? Please share.....THANX.
The truss bridge on 5th Street / connects S. Rodier Rd and heads back up to the site of the former bowstring. The 5th Street bridge is actually Price & Colburn pony over McKee Creek. I visited P&C Oct 24th, 2016 and took extensive pics. I was not aware of the bowstring location north of twon or I would have investigated while I was visiting my in-laws in Belton, MO. It is on list now.
I have a few more pics of Coe Bridge to post at a later date. Hard bridge to shoot in good light with so much undergrowth.
I recently discovered a few more photos of Conboy that I took in 2006. I hope to scan them soon & upload them.
Visited here July 15th, just before a visit to my dentist in Shelbina. More detail pics to follow.
