It's hard to see but in the very first picture there is a vehicle down the road. You can faintly see the overflow bridge which was the one believed to have been located for the riverwalk project. I can't find any literature on that particular bridge. I do remember watching them lift the entire bridge and setting it down off the side of the road, where it sat for some time until it was relocated.
There was actually two bridges at this location. One was about 150 to 200 yards west of the Platte river over an overflow area which isn't listed on here. I believe that is the bridge they used for the river walk.
The linked Riverwalk bridge is a Pratt and this is a Parker.
Is there more than one Riverwalk bridge?
Moved 1989 as the Riverwalk bridge next to Missouri River over Blacksnake Creek
