There seems to be no location web site for this bridge. I am surprised, BridgeHunter seed to have all of them...especially the Truss bridges.

Pony truss bridge. Called a Steadfast Bridge by Biltolast Products, Inc out of Fort Payne, Alabama. Bridge manufactures August of 1894 with the serial number of 94448-A. Bridge is approx. 30 feet long.

This bridge, like all the others on the Katy Trail, has had a wood deck applied, and the standard wooden "picket" fence fill in of the trusses, so small children could not fall into the creek. This work was done by the Missouri Department of Natural Resources.

Date built or dedicated as indicated on the date stone or plaque.: Aug. 1894

Date stone, plaque location.: east-right hand rail face

Road, body of water, land feature, etc. that the bridge spans.: Fisher Creek
