Riverside Bridge update
Thursday, June 09, 2011
The Riverside Bridge near Ozark, Missouri, was selected as one of Missouri's Most Endangered Historic Places for 2010. The bridge is still in danger and has now been selected for the same list for 2011
. (The Route 66 Bridge at Times Beach was also carried over to this year's list.)
Meanwhile, Kris Dyer has entered the Riverside Bridge in the This Place Matters Community Challenge from the National Trust for Historic Preservation. The historic site that receives the most votes will win a very nice grant. Right now the Riverside Bridge is ranked 43 out of 100. To vote for the bridge, please follow this link. You can only vote once and the deadline is June 30.
Please vote for this bridge! Anyone who likes historic bridges and has an internet connection should do this. Its real easy to do. The Riverside Bridge is the only historic bridge threatened with demolition that is on the list, so voting for this bridge will not be hurting any other historic bridges.
