Well, it sure did not take the graffiti artists long to find this one.

Well, that answers my question. I posted the few photos I took of the modern bridge on this page for reference purposes.

I lived just a few miles from this location and watched the whole project take place...it was a complete demolition and replacement; this bridge is completely modern.

The original bridge was demolished in 2006 and rebuilt in a similar aesthetic in 2006:

This bridge is still an arch bridge, but has a 2006 plaque on it and all material appeared to be modern. Does anyone have any conflicting evidence to my theory that this bridge was completely demolished and replaced with a similar arch bridge in 2006?
