Based on the latest NBI data, I suspect that this bridge has been demolished.

I am relatively certain that these photos are of this bridge as it is the only bridge that I am aware of which crosses the North Caney River in this area. The bridge is a six panel, pin connected Pratt through truss. It was open as of January, 2005 but appears to carry very little traffic.
