The original bridge consisted of three truss spans. The middle span was destroyed during a 1997 flood and was replaced by a temporary Bailey span. The new bridge opened in 2005.

Here is a link to a page about the new bridge. http://migration.kentucky.gov/Newsroom/kytc.d6/McKinneysburg...

Ok, I see now, again to answer a persons question.

According to another comment below, it says only one end remained after it was washed out in 97.

The picture dated "Summer 2005" must be of the only remaining span.

I think, that might be it, but i still think the photos are old, and were taken years ago, just not uploaded here until 2005.

To answer a persons question, the photos were taken years ago, probably 1995, or 1996.

See how older they look?

Digital cameras were just coming out back then, and did not have much brightness, so the photos are old and the bridge is gone.

There must be a mistake on what date the photos were taken.

This bridge is gone, it was never torn down, but destroyed by a flood in 1997.

Does anyone know if this bridge has been torn down or if its left standing next to the replacement bridge?

This bridge was completely damaged in the big flood of 1997 in the Ohio river valley. Only the one end remained after the flood waters leveled it.

Thanks
