A sign on the current bridge reads "Blaney Bridge, Engineered by Colin Blaney, 2003," but there has been a suspension bridge at this location since before 2003. Follow the photo showing the damaged bridge for more information.

Bridgemeister ID:2325
Status:Removed
Main cables:Wire
Notes
  • The June 22, 1940 edition of The Chillicothe Constitution-Tribune (Chillicothe, Missouri) has an article titled "Three Killed in Bridge Collapse, Workmen were repairing the structure near Lowry City, Mo." describing a fatal collapse of the bridge: "Three men were killed, three injured critically and an 8-year old boy believed drowned when cribbing on a wooden suspension bridge across the Osage River six miles east of Lowry City collapsed about 4 o'clock yesterday afternoon. The bridge, on a farm-to-market road in St. Clair County, was being remodeled. Of the ten men working and bystanders on and near the structure when it fell, only one escaped without injury. All those killed or injured lived in St. Clair County. On the west side of the bridge a framework of heavy timbers had been inserted between one of the suspension cables and an old wooden pier, which originally had supported the cable. The workmen were attempting to slide a steel pier under the cable, to replace the wooden pier. The cribbing suddenly gave way, and the pressure from the cable hurled the wood supports in all directions. The bridge floor dropped into the river, except for a small section near the east end."

Bob was 17, a brilliant budding environmentalist, and was attempting a southbound thru-hike of the Appalachian Trail the time of his accident. Later, the Green Mountain Club (a hiking organization) rebuilt the bridge and dedicated it to my late friend."
