Yea this Bridge was lost in the mid 1990s and replaced with a Viaduct type. There's also a duplicate listing here: http://bridgehunter.com/ks/wyandotte/bh36476/ of the Southern Span of it. It's one bridge replaced at 2 different times.

This bridge is not closed, I drive accross it 2-3 times a week.

Besides, this bridge can not close, it's the only back road bridge accross the train tracks.

Also, the Santa-Fe railroad uses it.

For them, it is a faster way to get to the tracks than to drive all the way around to the K-32 highway to get in.
