Riverside Bridge In Ozark Will Be Part Of Ozark Mill Project

The historic Riverside bridge in Ozark is moving back to its original location where it was first built more than 100 years ago.

The bridge will be moved by the historic Ozark Mill by the end of the year.

Bass Pro Shop's, Johnny Morris is helping with the project. As part of the partnership, Morris and Bass Pro Shops will restore, relocate and install the bridge alongside the Mill pending Army Corps of Engineers approval.

The new home for the bridge is in the same location where the infamous “Chadwick Flyer” railroad once crossed the Finley.

City Administrator, Steve Childers says the bridge will serve as an event setting and a trail connection from the mill to the other side of the river.

It was closed back in 2015 because of flood damage.

A new bridge will replace the old Riverside Bridge sometime next year.
