Charles Hyde's book... an outstanding publication... is a depressing read these days since so many of the bridges shown in it are gone today.

Heh, I was hoping for a Melissa newspaper article, but that'll do just as well confirming its replacement date. Though maybe an article will point somewhere for a build date.

Historicaerials shows it there in a 1983 view.

The Google Books find looks to be a match to the photo that is (erroneously) posted for the M-65 bridge - any way to move that over here?

The NBI shows the bridge now at this location was built in 1984; I'd like additional verification or history for that before simply slotting that in.

On a side note, the respective book sure sounds fascinating - will go through it when I get the chance.
