Missouri Valley Bridge, Leavenworth KS

Most recent update: July 17, 2011.


The Missouri Valley Bridge & Iron Company's shipyard in Leavenworth KS, on the Missouri River, was built for the war effort but continued after the war.  Thanks to Zack Hayman for providing its post-war construction record.  There are two big gaps in the wartime record - between the two series of LCTs and between the second series of LCTs and the lighters: if anyone can fill them, please send your data to timcolton@aol.com
