Bee Creek Bridge, Monroe County, MO

1080P/60fps. Recorded 08-10-2015. We'll drive over this bridge on our way to Cedar Bluff. This bridge has a concrete deck that appears to have been poured in the last 10 years or so.

Mark Shannon's video for this bridge appears to be unavailable now. Not sure if this is the right way to report that fact.

My son, Ken, & I visited here Columbus Day, 2017 (09.09.2017). Bridge still very solid, serviceable; on low use county road; located just 1/8 south of Cedar Bluff Bridge.
