1926 Route 66 /Ozark TrailAddress
After being closed to traffic for a couple of years the Rock Creek Bridge has been restricted to a 7' - 2' vehicle height limit to eliminate taller vehicles from using and damaging it.
The railroad bridge was built in 1925 because of traffic safety problems with Route 66 crossing the tracks of the St Louis and San Francisco Railroad. The clearance on this bridge was 13' 4" which was ample for cars and trucks when it was new, but not for some modern trucks and motorhomes.
The 3.3 miles roadbed was placed on National Register of Historic Places
