It's plainly bizarre to me that this location remains listed in the NBI despite there having been no physical bridge at this location for nearly a decade now. Has the county been planning on some kind of replacement structure but simply hasn't been able to pay for it all this time, or what? (Even if so, one would think the location would still be de-listed, and then re-listed upon replacement.)

The Kelly Road Bridge was hit by a drunk driver a few years ago and later torn down for scrap when determined it was salvageable :(.
