Roubidoux Creek Bridge

Historic Route 66 (Hwy. 17), Waynesville, MO

East < GO > West

This concrete arch bridge over the Roubidoux Creek on the edge of downtown Waynesville was built in 1923 as part of a road improvement project. In 1926 the road became part of the original Route 66. It wasn't until 1930 that the road itself was paved throughout Pulaski County.

xThe 415 foot long bridge was widened in 1939 and restored in the early 2000's.

x About Us We started traveling Historic U.S. Route 66 as a destination in 2009. It's like a 2,400 mile long drive back in time from Chicago to Santa Monica! more
xDid You Know: Many parts of the old 4 lane Route 66 were reverted to a 2 lane road after 66 was realigned to the interstate. In many places the abandoned lanes are still there.
