Narrative Description:

The Dug Hill Bridge (J0521) is a 140’ seven-panel, rigid-connected Pratt through truss constructed from standard Missouri State Highway Department designs.


The bridge is eligible for the National Register of Historic Places under criteria C for its significance in engineering as a good example of a standard State Highway Department Pratt through truss.


MoDOT’s Historic Preservation Section is now accepting proposals for the relocation and reuse of the bridge until December 31, 2018. A proposal checklist is available MoDOT’s Free Bridges website (http://www.modot.org/freebridges/). Preservation covenants may accompany the bridge.
