If you look at this link, the 3rd picture shows this bridge. These pictures were taken after the flood of 2007.

Robert: Is this one of the doomed arch bridges? I was surprised when I saw it was closed since it wasn't that long ago I was in Fort Scott and drove across it. Do you know when they closed it?

Posted January 10, 2012

This bridge is currently closed and is being replaced.

This bridge still exists and is still open to one-lane traffic. However, there is a low water crossing beside it that appears to be used by farmers in the area.

Posted July 9, 2010

This bridge has been replaced.

Posted July 4, 2010

The bridge has been reopened. The deck/sides of the bridge look like an UCEB, but the open spandrel arches underneath were preserved. I'll try to get up there and take pictures to post soon.

Posted April 15, 2010

There is definitely a bridge still there. You can see it from 351st Street when the leaves are off. It appears to be a camel back style bridge. But it's on private property with a no trespassing sign posted on what used to be the road--now a driveway to a house where no one lives. I haven't found out who owns it yet, so haven't tried to photograph the bridge.

Posted March 3, 2010

Thanks for the kind words, Robert. Actually, I can't take credit for finding the bridge. My junior high history teacher gave me a tip about a bridge he had seen in Fort Scott a few years ago, but he thought it was over the Marmaton River. When I found this one, I knew it wasn't the Marmaton, so I'm not sure if I found the bridge he was talking about or not.

Does anyone know if this bridge is still standing? I've wanted to get pictures of it, but didn't want to drive that far if it has been removed.

Posted June 11, 2007

My brother had an interesting encounter with this bridge. He had measured the width to make sure his equipment would fit on it, but apparently didn't measure both ends. And he managed to get stuck on the bridge.

I couldn't get a picture from the side because of the grass & weeds. I'll try to get one sometime this fall.

Webmaster's note: The photos that were here have been incorporated into the main site.

This bridge was replaced in 2005. The old bridge was relocated to a lake development somewhere in the Lake of the Ozarks.
