It may be a case where double tracking led to it being moved from just to the SW over Big creek.

Yes. Another clue is the "crash bar" which is the diagonal member halfway up the end post.

Bridge looks like it may have originally carried a railroad, now carrying a road. Narrowness and the portal bracing seem to hint at this.
