Narrative Description:

The Mussel Fork Drainage Ditch Bridge is a 296 foot long bridge comprised of a 100 foot long Warren pony truss with alternating verticals and three 30 foot I-Beam approach spans on each end. The bridge has timber pile with concrete cap bents and piers. The bridge has a 22 degree skew. The one-lane deck is 21 feet 11 inches wide. There are two tiers of channel railing on each side of the bridge.


The Mussel Fork Drainage Ditch Bridge is eligible for listing on the National Register of Historic Places as a relatively long, good example of State Highway Department standard truss design. MoDOT's Historic Preservation Section is now accepting proposals for the relocation and reuse of the bridge or its components until June 2, 2014. A proposal checklist is attached. Preservation covenants may accompany the bridge.
