Description 

According to a blurry satellite image, this bridge appears to be extant but on a bypassed alingnment or a private driveway. This will require a visit from a Bridge Hunter to resolve the issue of location and status.

I marked this as open to pedestrians because the bridge has no signs marking it closed and nothing blocking the bridge. People can either take the pedestrian trail around the bridge or cross the bridge directly to the other side of the path.
