I have already looked in the 1992 NBI! The old bridge was built in 1937. Now we have the answer!

I have driven over the old bridge, but I never did photograph it. The old bridge was a steel stringer, and was probably built in the 1930s or later.

If any of you can help me look for a photo of the previous bridge, or when this bridge was built, It would probably help me out. Let's not wait too long on finding historic photos for this bridge. Let's find lots of photos!
