Bridge A Gap
Our family farm down near Butler, MO has a lot of little creeks that run through the property but I’m not sure I would need to obtain this steel structure for the purpose of getting from one bank to another.
The historic Fishing River Bridge on US 69 Highway at Mosby, Mo, is available for relocation and reuse by an individual or organization.
Slated for replacement in May of 2015, the bridge can be obtained by government entities, historical or civic groups, or private citizens, free of charge.
This historic bridge is 309 feet in length and 34 feet wide, curb-to-curb, and carries two lanes of one-way traffic. Built in 1933, the emerald green bridge is 5 ½ miles southwest of Excelsior Springs and crosses the Fishing River.
More details about the bridge can be viewed online at http://www.modot.org/freebridges/.
