Inventory: Lists | Log | References | Condensed | Search

This is a list of the only bridge from the suspension bridge inventory crossing Little Niangua River. Please note that different rivers with the same name will be grouped together. For example, selecting 'Bear Creek' shows bridges across several different Bear Creeks. Also, similarly named rivers are grouped separately. For example, 'River Dee' (UK) bridges are grouped separately from 'Dee River' (Australia) bridges. Wherever you see a "Bridgemeister ID" number you can click it to isolate the bridge on its own page.

  • 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."
