Middle Fork Overflow Old US 36 Bridge
Posted December 5, 2010, by Scott Lowe (dayoffguy [at] aol [dot] com)

My family is from Macon Missouri.

When i go to Macon for visits, i like to take time and drive on the old Hwy 36 sections. Our family traveled old Hwy 36 many times going to Macon from KCMO. I know this bridge got crossed many times when i was a child when we had our old Chevelle station wagon.

You can see old 36 Hwy from New "interstate hwy 36".

Its like old Route 66, a bygone slower time in our highway history.
