Narrative Description:

The Forsyth Bridge is a five span, camelback through truss composed of four 181’ and one 182’ through truss spans with two steel stringer approach spans. The bridge has a 23’ 11” roadway and a 14’ 1” vertical clearance over the concrete deck.


The 1953 Forsyth Bridge is eligible for listing on the National Register of Historic Places for its association with the inundation of Bull Shoals Lake and the reconstruction of infrastructure that was required by that event, and for engineering significance. MoDOT's Historic Preservation Section is accepting proposals for the reuse of the bridge in the current location or for the relocation of the bridge or its components until June 1, 2016. Covenants may accompany the bridge to protect character defining features of the bridge.


A proposal checklist may be obtained on our Free Bridges website.
