Eep...this one may have been removed as far back as 1999. In fact, I wouldn't be surprised if in fact that was the year.

Some of the views of this location on Historic Aerials aren't that great for determining whether it's there or not (which I'm quickly finding is common in locations with plenty of tree cover), but the 1999 view is pretty conclusive. (1981 still shows it there, 1993 is far too blurry to be conclusive either way.)

Also, the three available NBI ratings for this bridge are from 1991, 1999, and 2010. 1999 still gives actual ratings (both super- and substructure are rated Imminent Failure), while 2010 does not. This is just my hunch, but it seems like a report will have specific ratings if the bridge is still there, whereas if none of the three structure features have a rating, that points to it being gone. (2010's Aerial, incidentally, also clearly shows it being gone.)
