I think this bridge may still be there, looking at the street view it looks like there is something hiding in the weeds.

Per ATRIP, strong possibility this one will be demolished and replaced with a modern bridge, too. Better see 'em before they're gone.

I'm starting to believe that ATRIP really stands for 'Alabama Trusses: Rest In Peace'
