Seems like there is one company that just makes prefab'ed steel truss bridges, and they just reassemble them on site at a crossing. Southwest Virginia has a bunch of them, too. They don't have as much character as the older ones, though.

Yeah, I know. I was just going through the NBI trying to add all the truss bridges in Alabama. I'm just amazed that they are actually building truss bridges period.

Pretty sure this would be just another generic mail-order-bridge span, considering it was build in 2003.
