From topo map, no sign of old RR grade and road alignment is too crooked to be former RR.

Looks like a vehicular bridge to me.

The category "railroad" was added to this bridge history. I am curious what historical evidence exists that supports this category classification? The bridge is a narrow and relatively lightweight design located in a region that is not known for a historical rail route. Further evidence requested.
