View Missouri Historic Bridge Inventory Sheet For This Historic Bridge

This pony truss is noted for its use of star iron for its outriggers. This material was most commonly used in 1870s bowstring truss bridges and rapidly decreased in use after the 1870s. As such, its appearance on this bridge is unusual. A handful of bridges displaying similar details can be found in both Missouri and Kansas, and these bridges may all be the work of the same builder. According to Missouri's inventory, this bridge was built by Missouri Valley Bridge and Iron Company, and the other bridges may be as well.

This bridge is to be replaced, but reportedly will be relocated and preserved.
