Looks like somebody fixed the listing.

Ha....very good chance Robert. Best way to get status changed?

I wonder if a couple parts of the bridge were salvaged to build a frame for the "bridge out" sign.

This one not hiding. Lost some time ago best guess - regardless, a neat spot and beautiful winding road to get there - always half the fun.

I suspect that this one is probably lost, but I can't say that 100 percent for sure. Don't be too disappointed if you find bare abutments. This one would purely be a bonus on the slightest chance that it is still hiding in the trees.
