Bridge still exists, but has been replaced by concrete two lane bridge on Longhorn Pass. Both approaches to the original bridge are now grassy areas with no bridge access.

Just found and added this bridge. Was not listed on here and there is no NBI data for it. Anyone have any clue as to any more info on it? I will be in Hartselle and Cullman this weekend so I will get photo of it.
