Thanks Ian. I was unsure if they replaced it in its entirety or just the approach spans. I will move this photo over to the other page and delete this entry.

Depending on how broadly one defines "replacement," this bridge still exists, albeit only the movable span. The approaches were replaced with concrete stringers after they burned in the 1980s. Not sure if it's worth merging with the MBTA entry (http://bridgehunter.com/ma/essex/mbta---danvers-river/) or keeping it separate.
