SBCDPW announced their plans to demolish this bridge within the last 30 days, despite previous assurances it would be preserved as a pedestrian bridge in the Santa Ana River Trail. No CEQA or NEPA analysis has been done on its historical significance. Ridiculous loss of history for no good reason.

Looks like the bridge will be used as a hiking trail. The article also makes reference to the bridge's original location:
