- Closed for a few weeks in October, 2007 for emergency repairs. According to an October 4, 2007 article in the Lake Sun Leader (Missouri): "a routine inspection revealed a problem in the substructure... too much movement was detected at a location underneath the north side of the bridge." Other sources mentioned a faulty "pin."
