Looking at the 2007 Streetview, it appears that the bridge was being disassembled.

Hopefully it found a good home. Looks like it was at a private residence.

It looks as if this one has moved on.

That's cool! At the mention of that, I started searching on Google Maps and actually found it!

Nice find Sheldon. There is also a bridge graveyard on the north side of Oskaloosa, KS (probably a storage area for Jefferson County). They have one bedstead and one Pratt pony, I think.
