US 65 overpass at Princeton, MO
Posted December 31, 2014, by Remick Bloss (remickbl [at] gmail [dot] com)

For anyone in northern Missouri, there is a long deck girder bridge over Highway 65 at Princeton, Mo. I have not seen it in the gallery yet. This must be the old Rock Island Spine Line. I know there are more RI bridges we have not seen yet. Keep up the great work!!!
