Wide deck, decent condition. Why was this even demolished? Because some uninformed official saw it said "deck truss" in the NBI and wrongly assumed that meant it was "like the I-35W Bridge?"

This bridge is scheduled to be replaced sometime in 2010-2011. Several of these pictures show the old stone bridge abutments from the previous bridge.
