Well, let's hope so. Several bridges in the area that were listed as "closed", were actually lost. There were a few exceptions though, with this being one of them.

That backhoe might just be for irrigation of the fields, as there are some smaller channels nearby.

Based on the near non-existence of the road, I would be rather surprised if they replace it with a new bridge.

This bridge has been listed as "unknown" since it has not been assessed by the NBI since the early 1990s.

The potentially good news is that Google Imagery indicates very clearly that the bridge is extant...

The potentially bad news is that Google Imagery indicates very clearly that there is construction activity near the bridge...
