Description 

I believe this was moved into its current position in the late 70's or 80's. It connects two strip mall parking lots. We had some flash floods in July and this cause the deck to buckle, and the bridge to close.

Based on the 70s/80s GIS views, my I agree that the bridge was relocated here in the late 70s/early 80s
