This the piece of metal I grabbed from the remains.

Bridge is a pile of scrap when we found it. Looks to be flood damage with the way the metal is twisted and snapped. Looks like some people have been scrapping the remains. I decided to grab a small piece to bring back of me. A small piece of lattice.

This is the bridge I posted about sometime ago, that I was unable to find. Its seems this bridge was moved to this spot maybe for farm use or as a historic relic. If you look at the 2000 NBI has the new bridge as being listed on the NRHP, I looked and the listing no longer exists.

But any thoughts are welcomed.
