Little Maquoketa River Bridge

Map 

Description 

Looking at the satellite photo, considering lost pavement and no trace of an extant bridge, I would conclude that this bridge has been scrapped and not replaced. Examination of the NBI indicates it was probably removed ca. 2006 when about a dozen bridges were removed and/or replaced by Dubuque County that year.
