It doesn't "need to get replaced" thank you very much. If it's no longer operated as a moving span, that's because it doesn't need to be. It's still a perfectly useful bridge in good condition.

Looks like this bridge needs to get replaced because it no longer operates.

We have a large steel plate dated 1928 L.E. Hutchings-Sup.

A.G. Proctor-Eng. It appears it was once on a bridge or cement monument. The screws and mountings are with it. We are trying to find out were it might have been mounted.
