It's visible in that pasture on Google Earth too. A much better fate than I had feared.

I can confirm that first post. I haven't been over the new bridge in a while, but the last time I crossed it, the old bridge was sitting in a pasture right past the new one. I heard that the gentleman who owns the property bought the old bridge, but I have no idea why.

Looks to have been replaced by a modern pony truss span very recently. There's just never any good news in these parts.
