The bridge stood for 76 years and was demolished in 2004, after the new Bill Emerson Memorial Bridge was opened.
A history of the bridge is presented in this previous blog:

Fred Lynch has captured images for the Southeast Missourian since 1975, in that time moving from black-and-white to color, from film to digital and to video. The blog title is a nod to an earlier era of news photography and the 4x5 Speed Graphic: It's more important to be there for the shot than to worry about technical details.
