It's been closed for 4 years. "Temporarily" closed for inspection in 2015, which everything they were worried about (Pins) passed inspection BUT the roadbed was (and clearly is) in such bad shape that they didn't reopen it.

There's apparently plans to reuse it as part of a cycling trail, which I hope comes to fruition.

6-17-2019 We visited this bridge. It is no longer open to automobiles and looks like it's been closed for quite a while. Took some photos to add to the file.
