West Fork Twelvepole Creek Bridge

Actually, this bridge had once not been near Doane, but rather had been on the old county road at Missouri Branch between the old US 52 (now 152) and the old county road that was abandoned once the N&W Railroad pulled up the tracks in 1933. Once the tracks were removed, the right of way was turned over to the state Department of Highways and was a much better road than the old county road which winded along the hillside. Since this bridge was no longer needed, it was moved to its present location. You can see the old concrete supports in the creek at Missouri Branch behind the old stone house.

Unfortunately, this span is in the midst of a replacement project. A new bridge is being constructed to its immediate north.

Photo's from a 2007 visit. Road sign names this road as Turkey Creek. During a 2008 visit a local fellow told us that this bridge had been removed from the State forest campground a few miles up the road near Doane. A new concrete bridge had been built at the forest campground entrance and this bridge had been installed here
