Looks more salvageable than many collapsed trusses, but it won't ever happen. Very sad.

This bridge collapsed some time after February 2017. That date on Google Earth it is still standing, later date it is collapsed.

I found this bridge on Google's Satellite View. It's not in the NBI. If anyone has any info, feel free to post it.
