Whee BridgeOak St. at Orner St. Carthage, MO
It's not big as bridges go, but since it had to be high enough for a train to pass under and it had to reach that height in one short block it created quite a hill, which leads to the thrill of cresting it. Built around 1920 the bridge is about 56 feet long in total, but the longest span is only 19 feet. The deck is 26 feet wide including a sidewalk on the north side.
Other names associated with this bridge are "Tummy Tickle Bridge" or Tickle Belly Hill.
