Little Maquoketa River Bridge

Map 

Description 

Looking at the satellite photo, considering new pavement and a new road alignment to the south of the original alignment, I would conclude that this bridge has been replaced by a UCEB. Examination of the NBI indicates it was probably replaced in 2006, one of about a dozen bridges replaced by Dubuque County that year.
