According to the Columbia Tribune article, “It’s an important part of the Mother Road, a connection to the Route 66 past,” Bill Bryan, the director of Missouri State Parks said. “It’s one of the last bridges of its design, and significant from an architectural standpoint.”
The bridge was built in 1931 and is now on the National Register of Historic Places.
