Street view looks like an Acrow truss, so perhaps a temporary bypass and a major rehab on the historic bridge.

Street View definitely shows a crew removing the deck from the old bridge. No doubt its getting dismantled :(

Looks like this bridge has been bypassed. Don't know if the bridge was taken down or not, though.
