The historic railroad bridge in Boonville has spanned the Missouri River since 1932, but it is no longer in use. Federal stimulus money being requested by the Missouri Department of Transportation could save the bridge from being dismantled. Union Pacific, the railroad company that owns the bridge, intends to dismantle it and recycle the steel for a new bridge over the Osage River.
