Both the 1853 and 1860 Viaducts appear to be part of the historic preservation of stuctures in Savannah. The are no longer active as road or railroad bridges.

The bridge is still in place. Google Map street view has some great images of the bridge. (Just south of the intersection of West Boundary and Louisville Road.)
