Tributary Cottonwood River Bridge

I think part of the confusion is that there are two listings with almost exactly the same name, but these are actually two different bridges--one was built in 1930 and the other in 1932, and are less than a mile apart, with the same design, carrying the same road, and crossing the same tributary.

It says "Circa 1930", meaning "around 1930". If the exact date isn't known, then an approximation is given. So it may have 1930 or 1932... even 1929.

Now, was this bridge built in 1930 or 1932? I'm confused.

This one is approx half a mile east of the other bridge and appears to be of the same design.
