This page covers two bridges that are the same general design, but have
design and date details. The rusty bridge on the north side has lattice railing
on it. It was built in 1900, and in 1911 it was reportedly shifted with a span
at the east end added. Following a flood, the south bridge was built in 1903.
This bridge also has the unusual jacking systems found on some bridges in Kansas
City that allowed the spans to be raised up slightly during floods. Reportedly,
the south bridge was also shifted with an extra span added in 1911 as well.
