Found this bridge in SHAARD. Says it is on an abandoned section of CR 1075E. It was labeled as bridge #80 in the report.

Not even sure why this would even be on the NBI! Thought at first it was on an abandoned section of CR 1075E, but the alignment doesn't come close to being right. My other thought is that maybe a farmer obtained it and moved it there....but then why would it be in the NBI?? This is a bit of a mystery.

I just had a look at Bing Maps. The road is long-abandoned, but there is clearly an extant bridge here.
