Assuming by default a good faith attempt to contribute, we might consider the possibility that the poster believes a former bridge somewhere around here is no more. Is there another nearby possibility?
Yep, so either we have another "she who must not be named" or somebody mistook this bridge for another one. Thanks for providing confirmation that this bridge does indeed still exist.
The doubter anon was me
All I know is that in the latest Street View dated December 2018, the bridge is still standing. Apparently, Annonymous is either mistaking this bridge with another one unless there's photographic evidence, or the person is just pissing us off. In either case, her claim is fake news unless we have real evidence.
Unless, of course, at least one of these "Anonymous"es is just What's Her Name again...
Last year, a user who has since been banned, was falsely claiming that a certain bridge in Florida had been destroyed by flooding. Thus, users are going to be a little bit skeptical about reports of bridges being destroyed unless there is photographic evidence or reputable news stories.
Last year's Florida Saga made for a lot of doubting Thomases on here. If you have photographic evidence of this bridge being destroyed, then please upload it. If you do not have a user account, you can post a photo in the comments.
I searched for information as well. All I can say is that my eyes work just fine, and the bridge is gone.
I find that hard to believe, considering there's been no information posted about it.
I drove by here last summer, and the bridge is gone.
Why Is Did This Bridge Shut Down in 2016? What is The Matter With It?
Just wanted to update the status of this bridge. The toll bridge was replaced by a new bridge just to the west of this bridge in approx. 2004 (give or take a year). The tolls were taken off of this bridge, but the bridge was open at last check. The bridge still carries Hwy B on the Missouri side, and I believe the Iowa side is now a county road, but the road dead ends into the new highway (Highway 27) just north of the bridge).
I agree, this bridge is quite unique as a relatively small-scale cantilever thru truss, it looks nothing like the big Mississippi River and Missouri River bridges.
That said the bridge does have very bad concrete cracking on some of the piers. So I would expect to see this bridge repaired or demolished in the future, otherwise Im guessing the affected spans could collapse. It looked that bad to me.
