The company is directly to the left of the bridge and both quarries have been filled in.

Here's an aerial image from the 1960s showing them before:

I saw the first picture of the bridge and read the article about the bridge and I have a couple of questions.I read the bridge was built to handle the quarry trucks going to the plant.I don't see the quarry on satellite and where is the company that's supposed to be near the bridge?
