MACON – The Wyaconda River Bridge, located 6.6 miles northwest of
Memphis on Scotland County Route C, will be impacted by highway
improvements in the future, and because it is eligible for the National
Register of Historic Places, local governments, historical societies or
other interested groups may have the opportunity to obtain the bridge
for adaptive reuse purposes.
Tyler Holladay, historic preservation specialist at the Missouri
Department of Transportation, said the bridge was built in 1936 by
Vaughn Construction Company. The bridge is 174 feet with a 120-foot
six-panel, rigid-connected Pratt through truss with a wide-flange girder
approach span on the south end. A flyer with details about the bridge is
attached to this news release.
MoDOT’s Historic Preservation Section is now accepting proposals for the
relocation and reuse of the bridge or its components until Feb. 1, 2021.
More information about this bridge, and proposal guidance, may be found
