This full suspension iron bridge was built in the 1930s and crosses the White Water River in Bollinger County Missouri. The bridge is a single lane bridge with a wooden deck. It has been closed now for two years, the bridge still stands and you can walk across it but it has steel beams across each end to prevent vehicular traffic of any kind.
We have had hardly any rain for over a month so I waded the river to the center to take this image. As you can see grasses are growing in the gravel bed of the river. A few days of heavy rain however can have this river up and running like a monster. It has washed out sixty foot long solid concrete low water bridges when on the rampage.
