Do we really need a street view of a UCEB?

Bridge status should be Lost.

Went through here on 2 storm chases within the last 2 weeks, and yes, a concrete bridge is in its place.

This bridge, located on US 75 immediately north of Burlington, Kansas, was replaced by a modern concrete bridge in September 2006. This picture was taken from a nearby gravel road in November 2004 as construction for the new bridge was just beginning.
