Tom,

This bridge is gone. I think the bridge you are referring to is this bridge: http://www.bridgehunter.com/ma/hampden/W250100V8MHDNBI/

Old bridge not torn down. Old bridge is currently closed while undergoing extensive rehabilitation. Possible re-opening in early 2011. New bridge completed late 2009 and carrying traffic in both directions. When all bridge and street approach work ends in late 2011, old bridge will carry southbound traffic, new bridge will carry northbound traffic.
