[Does the river normally run high or did the Street View camera also catch it at a rather high level. John Marvig's photos in Bridge Hunter show five layers of concrete above water in his Sept. 2016 photos.]

To my friends not from the Midwest, you might keep us in your prayers here in Missouri. This is the train bridge over the Missouri River. The levee's are breaking to the north and south of us and at this rate will top them within hours.

Chris Marcie Cottrell I think originally it was a CB&Q branch off the Q’s mainline over on the Missouri side.
