Narrative Description:

The Patton Bridge is a two-span Warren pony truss bridge with “U” concrete abutments, and a concrete channel pier. The bridge is composed of an 80’ and a 60’ pony truss span skewed 24 degrees. The bridge has a 20’ roadway and the bottom chord is 22’ wide. There are 2” gas pipe rails on the bridge.


The 1922 Patton Bridge is eligible for listing on the National Register of Historic Places as one of the earliest surviving standard plan pony truss bridges and for the combination of unequal size trusses. 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.
