On Google maps, it looks like the abutments still exist. There also appears to be some sort of pier in line with the abandoned roadbed on to the northwest.

Looking at the map I noticed to be what looked like an electrified rail line.Which rail company would that be running an electrified rail line?Looks out of place.
