About what you'd expect from the NBI.

It's in the 1996 and 2000 NBI with the 1996 showing a 1914 build date and the 2000 showing 1936.

While the NBI lists this bridge as being built 1936, the bridge shows up as a 1913-1914 bridge in valuation maps. With the steel stringers encased in concrete, the bridge may indeed have been reconstructed in 1936 to replace a failing slab span (such as the County Road 36 bridge to the west), reusing the 1913 abutments.
