Description 

Both the owner and a neighbor claim this is the center span of the US 40 bridge over Sni-A-Bar Creek east of Grain valley. They did the relocation with their own equipment. This bridge is single lane and pin connected which rules it out as having been from the riveted Warren two lane on US 40.

Both people recall it sitting atop piers when they moved it from a location near the US 40 bridge. It may have been the private road bridge a few hundred feet to the south of US 40: https://bridgehunter.com/mo/jackson/bh88170
